TimeSpan TextBox custom format

Thread ID:

I have a question about TimeSpan Cell.
I set the cell information like that:

CellType = "TextBox";
CellValueType = typeof(TimeSpan);
CellValue = TimeSpan.Parse(s);

and subscribe the Model.QueryCellFormattedText event to format the display text. However, if I want to give several valid TimeSpan format in the TextBox, What can I do?
For example: Besides permit "dd.hh:mm:ss", also permit user inputing: "1 days 2 hours 3 minutes 4 seconds" and "1d2h3m4s"

Hi Kolauy,

One you can handle the QueryCellFormattedText event handler of the Grid to format the several TimeSpan cell as desired. Please try code below.

bool IsTimeSpanTextWithGeneralFormat = true;
void Model_QueryCellFormattedText(object sender, GridCellTextEventArgs e)
if (e.Style.CellValueType == typeof(TimeSpan))
TimeSpan tsp;
if (TimeSpan.TryParse(e.Value.ToString(), out tsp))
if( IsTextWithTimeSpanGeneralFormat )
e.Text = "TimeSpan" + e.Value ; //your custom formatted text here
string DisplayText = string.Format("{0}days{1}hour{2}minutes", tsp.Days, tsp.Hours, tsp.Minutes);
e.Text = DisplayText;
e.Handled = true;

Best regards,
