Formatting the string of a column in a grid.

Thread ID:

Asked On May 10, 2019 12:02 PM UTC

I have the following grid:

                              .Datasource(ds => ds.URL("/ThingsToDo/GetThingsToDoData?qid=" + ViewBag.usid + ViewBag.InitialFilter)
                              .PageSettings(page => { page.PageSize(ViewBag.PageSize); })
                              .Columns(col =>
                                  col.Field(c => c.Label).Template("#labelFormat").HeaderText("description").TextAlign(TextAlign.Left).Width(50).AllowEditing(false).Add();
                                  col.Field(c => c.TotalCount).HeaderText("total").TextAlign(TextAlign.Left).Width(15).AllowEditing(false).Add();
                                  col.Field(c => c.ExpiredCount).HeaderText("expired").TextAlign(TextAlign.Left).Width(20).AllowEditing(false).Add(); 

The column label is being rendered as thus:
"Working :"
I can't remove the ":" character backend for some reasons and I need to remove it front end.
I know I can apply a template so as to remove the ":" character at the end of the label, but don't know how to proceed.

Any help please?

Hi Alis, 
Thanks for using Syncfusion products.  
Query: “I know I can apply a template so as to remove the ":" character at the end of the label, but don't know how to proceed. 
From your query we understand that you need to remove the “:” from the string. We have achieved your requirement using TemplateRefresh() event of ejGrid. Refer the below code example 
            .PageSettings(page => { page.PageSize(4); }) 
            .Columns(col => 
                col.HeaderText("Employee Image").Template("#columnTemplate").TextAlign(TextAlign.Center).Width(110).Add(); 
<script type="text/x-jsrender" id="columnTemplate"> 
    <span> {{:FirstName}}</span> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function Trefresh(args) { 
        if (args.column.headerText == "Employee Image") { 
            if ($(args.cell).text().includes(":")) { 
                var txt = $(args.cell).text().split(":")[0]; 
private void BindDataSource() 
            order.Add(new Orders(1, "Nancy:", "Sales Representative", "Seattle", "USA")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(2, "Andrew", "Vice President, Sales", "Tacoma", "USA")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(3, "Janet", "Sales Representative", "Kirkland", "USA")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(4, "Margaret", "Sales Representative", "Redmond", "USA")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(5, "Steven", "Sales Manager", "London", "UK")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(6, "Michael", "Sales Representative", "London", "UK")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(7, "Robert", "Sales Representative", "London", "UK")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(8, "Laura", "Inside Sales Coordinator", "Seattle", "USA")); 
            order.Add(new Orders(9, "Anne", "Sales Representative", "London", "UK"));          
Refer the below screenshot for the output
