Smart PropertyGrid.Net 2.1 builds on the major 2.0 release by adding support for the .Net Framework 1.1, plus many enhancements including: custom property filtering at creation (default behavior only filters on BrowsableAttribute); icons in front of property labels; option to set any enumerable property as an autocomplete list; PropertyValueChanged event triggered for any collection (the Microsoft equivalent is buggy); and column width set by ratio.

VisualHint today released Smart PropertyGrid.Net 2.1 introducing .Net Framework 1.1 support in response to customer requests. Now, Smart PropertyGrid can enhance end-user experience for any .Net application.

Smart PropertyGrid.Net 2.1 is available on Jan. 19, 2007, from Prices start at $139 (U.S.) per license, with quantity discounts available.
