    Is there a way to override the label that displays next to a User Control field when editing?  For example in the TIUSite Sample Site there's a MainGallery user control that has an IntroText field.  When you edit the user control the label next to the input box is "IntroText".  We'd like to ability to change (override) that to "Into Text" or what ever might make it more user friendly.

    Hello Jason,

    Currently, there is no way to change the text of the property label and we think that it's not a good solution. Instead of this we are planning to add an ability for users to create custom friendly control editors (wizards) for their custom controls. For example, when a user goes to edit a control and if the control has such friendly editor, it will appear in the property dialog, still the user (most commonly, a developer) will be able to switch to the the advanced property editor, which is the current one. We prefer this, because the developers are used to see the original names of the properties when editing a control (like in Visual Studio), and on the other hand, the non-developers will be able to use more friendly editors.

    This feature is planned for Sitefinity 3.1.

    Sincerely yours,
    the telerik team
