I figured it out that how to set mask. But when I am trying to enter decimal value in a cell I am getting following error “Input string was not in correct format” Just to remind that I am setting mask in GridDataBundGrid control in a multirowrecord view. Please help me. Because this my formulas are also not working. Thanks

There are several ways you can approach this problem. The way I would try to do it is to make sure teh column type is set to double an dthe Format is set teh way you want it. this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[1].StyleInfo.CellValueType = typeof(double); this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[1].StyleInfo.Format = "#,###.00"; This should allow you to enter and see teh values. And if your users types an invalid valid, you will get a message. If you want to make it so you user cannot type a invalid value, I would handle the CurrentCellValidateString event and vaildate the string with each key stroke to see if make sure the entry is valid.
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellValidateString(object sender, GridCurrentCellValidateStringEventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell;
	if(cc.ColIndex == 2)
		double d;
		if(!double.TryParse(e.Text, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Any, null, out d))
			e.Cancel = true;
