Rich Text in Grid Control Cell

Thread ID:

Asked On February 4, 2008 08:57 PM UTC


I am trying to display some rich text in cell of a grid control, but it always displays the contents with all the formatting characters. I have set the cell type to RichText. I have also implemented the GridPrepareViewStyle, to get the cell back color and cell text color. The default text color is black, but the contents of the cell should display the rich text in a different color, for which I have the rich text format characters.

Is there something else that I need to do.

Please help.

this.mainGrid[0, iCol].Text = "Classification";
this.mainGrid.ColStyles[iCol].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left;
this.mainGrid.ColWidths[iCol] = 150;
this.mainGrid.ColStyles[iCol].Tag = iCol;
this.mainGrid.ColStyles[iCol].CellType = "RichText";

Hi Deepak,

The RichText sample illustrates how you can display and edit RichText in the Grid Cells. It will allow you to optionally dropdown an editable RichText window where you can modify the RichText in the cell. In addition, this sample will allow you to display an event log which, will show the order of the currentcell events that are raised and the values that are present in the cell as the events occur. You will be able to see mouse events as well.

Here is a path.

Best regards,

I had a look at the sample code, I am doing something similar but I still see problems with my Rich text box.

I have pasted some sample code below

void GridPrepareViewStyle(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0)
int iCol = Convert.ToInt32(this.mainGrid.ColStyles[e.ColIndex].Tag);
if (this.displayData.Count < e.RowIndex) return;

GridData val = (GridData)this.displayData[e.RowIndex-1];

if(val!=null )

e.Style.TextColor = val.GetCellTextColorByIndex(iCol);
e.Style.BackColor = val.GetCellBackColorByIndex(e.RowIndex, iCol);

val = null;
catch (Exception er)
Console.WriteLine("GridPrepareViewStyle Error: " + er.Message);

This the string that has to be displayed

string sHighlightRTF = @"{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Arial;}}
{\colortbl ;\red255\green0\blue0;}
{\*\generator Msftedit;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\cf1\f0\fs20 !\cf0\par

Hi Deepak,

Thank you for your details.

I have looked into the code provided by you.

Do you have more than one grid? The below code snippets indicates there are two grids in your application.


Could you please provide some more details to reproduce the issue? Or modify the below browser sample to reproduce the issue so that we can provide you a solution early?
