Property Pages in SQL Server Management Studio
Property page dialog boxes in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio all use a common format displaying information with expanding and collapsing categories. The fields shown depend on the particular property. Properties shown in gray are read-only. Categorized and Alphabetic buttons are near the top of each property page.
The following table describes the common elements of Management Studio property page dialog boxes.
