All Builders use the Property Browser that exposes only those properties that really affect appearance and behavior of a control. The Property Browser works exactly like Visual Studio property browser does.

In addition to set only valid values to properties, Builders also allow you to:
  • sort the properties alphabetically and display them categorized;
  • resize columns and the property description pane;
  • show/hide the property description pane;
  • expand/collapse categories;
  • double click on the property name to change value of the property;
  • reset properties to default values.
