What does a PropertyComponent do?

Hi all:

I was looking through the Juce documentation, and saw PropertyComponent and PropertyPanel. The definitions of these in the documentation is a bit confusing, as one works with the other, but it isn’t explained what the combination of these actually does.

So…what can you do with these? I am hoping to create the equivalent of frames in HTML for some upcoming plugins, where I can go through different sets of controls in the same area of the GUI. Would PropertyComponents help me do this? If not, what do they do?

They might be what you want - basically a PropertyPanel contains a list of PropertyComponents. It’s what the jucer uses as its right-hand panel with the component properties.
