I am trying to find a way to
dynamially change column formatting
in virtual grid when the user
rearranges columns using drag and drop.
I need to format dates, numbers, currency fields etc.
I could not find a good example,
but here is what I came up with:
//or another format specifyer
However, it does not work and even when I read this property right after I set it I am getting "" (an empty string)
Anybody knows how to handle this?
Your help is appreciated

In a virtual grid, you can set a column format using QueryCellInfo. Check for e.ColIndex equal to the column you want to set and check e.RowIndex == -1, and then set e.Style.Format.

Is not it better performance wise to
set formatting on the column
level once, rather than setting it for each
individual cell on the grid?

There are no colstyles allocated in a true virtual grid. If you want to allocate the column styles, then you should not use QueryColCount, but instead just explicitly set grid.ColCount. This will allocate the storage required for the ColStyles and then you should be able to set them directly (provided your QueryCellStyleInfo code does not change the e.Style when e.RowIndex == -1 and e.ColIndex > 0).
