[Mono-winforms-list] Property Grid

I have two quick questions:

1. I assume reuse of other controls is allowed? The combobox class uses
the textbox control for some functionality. The top of the property grid
appears to be a toolbar control, so I was making sure it was ok to use
the toolbar control, rather than having to re-implement that

2. If using the toolbar is allowed, am I allowed to use images for the
buttons, or do I need to draw them myself to support themes in some
additional way? If I can use images, is there a certain format (png,

Thanks Again,

My reluctancy is mainly due to the amount of time I have available. I
think the best thing for me to do would be to see how far I get in the
next week. If I make progress I'll sign up. If someone else wants to
work on it feel free. I'd like to contribute, but if nothing comes from
my effort except learning some things, I'm fine with that.

Thanks again,

Our goal is to be complete by end of February 2005. (I am ignoring
for this statement).

If it's technical questions that make you reluctant to sign up for=20
implementing, don't be. We'll be happy to answer any questions you may
and guide you through.

I was planning on doing more than stubs, but I don't know if I am ready
sign up for 'implementing' the control. I'll give it a shot, and try to
the beginnings of something back here sometime next week.

Is there any sort of time length associated with completing a control,
than the roadmap (it lists windows forms as a Q4 2004 item)?

Please no stubs. To avoid some past mistakes and problems we won't
stubs for SWF. It does not safe any time for the person who will
it, creates a false impression of completeness and therefore bogus
bugreports, and invites to do incomplete implementations. Please read
Guidelines in the Managed.Windows.Forms directory.
Unless I missunderstood you and you want to implement the control, which
would be awesome!

Is anyone working on the Property Grid Control? I will take a look at
stubbing together some code if nothing is done.
