I am trying to retrieve the data from a Property Grid and am at a loss on how to do it. I have found lots of articles on how to fill one; just not one on retrieving the data. I would like to put this data into a text format.

a little more information: this is an application that I am maintaining the Property grid is filled by a multitude of classes and methods that read and translate a binary file. It would take a substantial effort to modify the existing code to provide the information that I am looking for, including translating the file a second time. Considering that the data that I need is already in the property grid...

here is what I am doing to fill the grid:

protected virtual void OnSelectedTransactionChanged()
        {
            if (selectedTransaction != null)
            {
                journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject = selectedTransaction.GetJournal();


I have added this code and it is not working my syntax is off:

   PropertyGrid pg = new PropertyGrid();
   PropertyDescriptor pd;
   PropertyDescriptorCollection pdc;
   StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder();


pdc = TypeDescriptor.GetPropertie(journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject, true);

foreach (PropertyDescriptor pd in pdc)
  {
    str.AppendFormat("{0} =", pd.Name);
    str.AppendFormat("{0}", (pd.GetValue(pg.SelectedObject)));
    str.AppendFormat("\r\n");
  }
  string text = str.ToString();
  txtJournal.Text = text;



I am using Visual Studio 2005, C#

Thank you in advance

What error do you get? You have a typo in your code (GetPropertie), is that the problem?

yes thank you I fixed that it now works; it still does not retrieve the sub arrays i need to find out how to iterate through those. here is the code that I am using

protected virtual void OnSelectedTransactionChanged()
{
if (selectedTransaction != null)
{
journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject = selectedTransaction.GetJournal();
StringBuilder str = new StringBuilder();


PropertyDescriptorCollection pdc = TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject, true);

foreach (PropertyDescriptor pd in pdc)
{
str.AppendFormat("{0} = ", pd.Name);
str.AppendFormat("{0}", (pd.GetValue(journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject)));
str.AppendFormat("\r\n");
}
string text = str.ToString();
txtJournal.Text = text;
// Highlight the Transaction in the MemoryDump
memoryDumpControl.Highlight(
selectedTransaction.Offset,
selectedTransaction.Size);

offsetToolStripStatusLabel.Text =
string.Format(Resources.StatusOffset, selectedTransaction.Offset);

sizeToolStripStatusLabel.Text =
string.Format(Resources.StatusSize, selectedTransaction.Size);
}
else
{
journalPropertyGrid.SelectedObject = null;
memoryDumpControl.Highlight(0, 0);
}

ToggleTransactionControls();
}
I am filling a textbox with the data as i iterate through the PropertyGrid, like i sated earlier i am unable to go through the sub arrays. any ideas?
