Default Added Property to Strategy but Not Showing on Property Grid

I code most of my strategies by hand not using the Wizard. When I introduce a property, how do I make it appear on the Property Grid when selecting a Strategy?

It seems as though when when you select Parameters for a strategy via the wizard, it appears on the Property Grid but if you write a Parameter by hand, it does not show.

Can you help me please?

Here is an example of how to do it. Add this in the Variables section:

privateint test = 1;

Add this in the Properties section:

publicint Test
get { return test; } set { test = Math.Max(1, value); }

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
