How can I force UPPERCASE to specific grid cells ?

Hi Edijs,

For GridControl :

There is no property setting for a CellType = "TextBox" that does this. If you set the CellType to "OriginalTextBox" you can set the CharacterCasing style property.

this.gridControl[1, 1].CellType = "OriginalTextBox";
this.gridControl[1, 1].CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper;

The "OriginalTextBox" is derived from System.Windows.Forms.TextBox which supports this property, but the default "TextBox" celltype is derived from RichTextBox which does not.

For GridDataBoundGrid:

By default, DataBoundGrid doesn't store any style info properties. You can not set any cell or row specific properties for the DataBoundGrid other than the CellValue. You need to handle the Model.QueryCellInfo event to do this. Through this event you can set the style properties for the grid.

To set the CharacterCasing and CellType for a cell, you check for the e.RowIndex/e.ColIndex, if that points to the row you desired, set the e.Style.CharacterCasing/e.Style.CellType for it.

See the KnowledgeBase Articles for more info.
