Hide editor options for custom property type

I have created a custom property type which has PropertyDataType.LongString as Type. This seems to trigger the page type property editor to show the editor options, which have no use for my custom property type. Can I prevent this section from showing in the add/edit property page?

    It's the EPiServer.Web.WebControls.InputEditorOptions that renders the checkboxes.

     It does a foreach on the EditoToolOption enum. I guess you could try making your own implementation overrideing the CreateChildControls. Then either use it directly in the Admin\EditPageTypeField.aspx or make your own version and use virtualpathmappings to use your version.

    Or make your own version of EditPageTypefield override the onload and use virtualpathmappings to use your version. it's in the onload that the hiding/display of the editoroptioncheckboxes are made.

    Thank you for the plentiful information. I thought it would be easier though :) I'll probably leave it be.
