The properties view uses a ListFieldIterator class to go through each field and decide which to display.

It decides which columns to display columns based on

  • if the Column is Hidden
  • if the Column has the ShowInViewForm (for Display views) property
  • some other internal Voodoo

If you're looking to replicate this you can probably use the ListFieldIterator.IsFieldExcluded property
