Hi there

I have a typed dataset that has a Timespan column called "ElapsedTimeSecs". I bind this to a GDBG, and then set the format as follows:

dbg.Binder.InternalColumns("ElapsedTimeSecs").StyleInfo.Format = "mm:ss"

The formatting is not applied however? I have used this technique for DateTime columns with no problem. Any ideas please

Hi John,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

You need to handle the QueryCellFormattedText event handler of the GridDataBoundGrid to format the TimeSpan column as desired. Please try code below.

// Form Load
dbg.Binder.InternalColumns("ElapsedTimeSecs").StyleInfo.CellValueType = typeof(TimeSpan)

// grid.Model.QueryCellFormattedText

void Model_QueryCellFormattedText(object sender, GridCellTextEventArgs e)
if (e.Style.CellValueType == typeof(TimeSpan))
string s = e.Style.Text;
TimeSpan timespan = (TimeSpan)e.Value;
string formatValue = string.Format("{0}:{1}", timespan.Minutes, timespan.Seconds);
e.Text = formatValue;
e.Handled = true;

Let me know if this helps.

Have a nice time.
