Changing default value of a property of a control (DataGridView).

    I am inheriting my own datagridview (say MyDataGridView) from the standard datagridview control. What I want is that certain properties of MyDataGridView should have a different default value than what its base have. For example, AllowUserToAddRows, AllowUserToDeleteRows, AllowUserToResizeRows properties should have the default values of False; so that when I drag MyDataGridView into a form in the IDE, the default values shown in the properties grid should be False. Later on, if I want to change them to True from the grid, they will be set accordingly. Is it possible somehow? Please note that I don't want to set the default value of any custom property in MyDataGridView but the properties mentioned above that are derived from the base. Thanks.
