Format Data in GridDataBoundGrid

I tried to format data in GridDataBoundGrid by GridDataBoundGrid1[i, j].Format="0.000" or GridDataBoundGrid1[i, j].Format="{0:0.000}" It did not work. Is there a different way (there must be) to format numerical data? Thank you very much for help. J. Sun

You cannot set cell specific properties in a GridDataBoundGrid. See this KB. http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/grid/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=83 To set a format on a singler cell is a GridDataBoundGrid, you shuld handle the grid.Model.QueryCellInfo event. In your handler if e.RowIndex and e.ColIndex point to teh cell, set e.Style.Format = "0.00" (for example) and also set e.Style.CellValueType = typeof(double). In order for the formatting to work, the CellValueType property needs to be set. Now if you want to set a format on a column, then you can use teh GridBoundColumn.StyleInfo.Format / CellValueType properties to manage this without handling an event. But if you want to do it cell by cell, you need to handle grid.Model.QueryCellInfo.
