    You will need to find the Control's code file first, who's type should either be listed in the Web.config's \telerik\cms\toolboxControls section, or it will be in the Module's code file inside the overridden "IList<IToolboxItem> Controls" method.

    Then adding a new property is as simple as creating a new property in the Control's code file (create a private member with a public get/set accessor):

    private string strNewProperty
    public string NewProperty {
      get { return this.strNewProperty; }
      set { this.strNewProperty = value; }

    It will then show up in the Edit section with the rest of the Control's properties.  You should also be able use that property in your Control's code to do your filtering.  Hope that helps.

    Hello Dave,

    This is exactly what needs to be done. You just have to add ";" at the end of the first line :)

    Thanks for helping out, Dave. Your Telerik points have been updated.
