Asked On August 29, 2007 05:30 PM UTC


At the time of initialization, we are setting the column type like below,
// Set the column types
GridStyleInfo colStyleInfo = ColStyles[colIndex];

if (colType.Equals(typeof(double).ToString()))
colStyleInfo.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right;
colStyleInfo.CellValueType = typeof(double);
colStyleInfo.Format = "#,##0.00";

This allow us not to type negative(-), when we start editing. But after typing a number, it allow us to type negative(-).

Request To Know:
1. We should have the ability to start with negative(-).
2. Could you please give us a small description about the purpose of "#" in the format.

Please help us out.

Thanks & Regards,
