Format for GridNumericColumn


I am new to SyncFusion. I have created a SfDataGrid in a UWP desktop app. I have a column in the grid for the tax year. For my test, the tax year is 2019.

If I specify FormatString="D" in XAML:
     The cell is blank when displaying the value.
     The cell is blank when attempting to edit the value.

If I specify FormatString="0000" in XAML.
     The cell displays the value correctly: 2019
     The cell includes a comma when editing the value: 2,019

How do I remove the comma when the cell is being edited? (And, should the "D" format string work?)

Thank you,

Hi Scott, 
Thanks for your patience. 
We have analyzed reported case with FormatString of GridNumericColumn . For GridNumericColumn, we have loaded SfNumericTextBox as edit element. And your requirement to remove comma in edit mode can be achieved by setting SfNumericTextBox.EnableGroupSeparator in OnEditElementLoaded method of numeric column renderer. 
Please refer to the below code snippet 
this.sfgrid.CellRenderers["Numeric"] = new CustomGridCellNumericRenderer(); 
public class CustomGridCellNumericRenderer : GridCellNumericRenderer 
        protected override void OnEditElementLoaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
            var numericTextBox = sender as SfNumericTextBox; 
            numericTextBox.EnableGroupSeparator = false; 
            base.OnEditElementLoaded(sender, e); 
Also please find the sample for the same from the below link
