With the Edit tool selected, place the mouse over the option menu and
execute the following in the message box:

select the mouseControl

The option menu should be selected and you can click the Inspector button in
the toolbar to open the inspector.

Alternatively you can set the selectGroupedControls property of the data
grid to true. If you refresh the application browser all controls in the
data grid will show up.
