public sealed class NotifyParentPropertyAttribute : Attribute


Apply System.ComponentModel.NotifyParentPropertyAttribute to a property if its parent property should receive notification of changes to the property's values. For example, in the Properties window, the System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView.RowTemplate property has nested properties such as System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewRow.Height and System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewRow.DefaultCellStyle. These nested properties are marked with NotifyParentPropertyAttribute(true) so they notify the parent property to update its value and display when the property values change.
