Using Format/Parse/ConvertEventArgs in DataGrid???

I've found this question on several message boards with no answer: Say I've got a datagrid bound to a datatable. How can I use the format/parse delegates to mask the contents of a column? Say I want the "company_id" column to call my decodeCoID() function that will look up the name in a hash-table. I suspect I'm going to hadd a handler to some binding: AddHandler b.Format addressof decodeCoID The question really is: which binding do I add it to? How do I get a handle to the "company_id" databinding having only set the data source to a table with a "company_id" column? Help much appreciated!!! Jim
