Connecting a Single Complex Property to a Property Page

It's possible to connect one or more complex properties directly to a Property Page rather than an entire control. When you connect a property directly to a Property Page in this way, the entry for the property in the Properties Window displays an ellipsis (…) to the right of the property value (see Figure 13.10). The developer can click on the ellipsis to bring up a Property Page for that property.
