Trying to format a cell

I am trying to format a cell so that when a user inputs a new record the cell (Postcode) allows only correct formatting though.  I have tried this myself with 'cell type' set to masked edit but this just put the mask into the cell ie. 'LL00 0LL' using widows masking.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Dave, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products. 

We have analyzed your scenario and created the simple sample as per your requirement. To set the mask for the particular column , Mask property of GridMaskEditInfo can be used. Please make use of the below code, 

Code example: 
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColStyles["Description"].CellType = GridCellTypeName.MaskEdit; 
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColStyles["Description"].MaskEdit.Mask = "##-##-##";
