How can a get the datatype of the active column?

I use a GridDataBoundGrid and i'm trying to get the datatype of the active column (the column with the selected cell). How can i do that? I used the code below, but it doesn't seem to work because it always returns System.Int32 (while most columns contain text information). Console.WriteLine(_grid.CurrentCell.GetType()); or _grid.GetCol(_grid.CurrentCell.ColIndex).GetType(); Thanks in advance.

If you have not explicitly added GridBoundColumns, then you could use code like: int field = _grid.Binder.ColIndexToField(_grid.CurrentCell.ColIndex); Type t = _grid.Binder.InternalColumns[field].StyleInfo.CellValueType; If you have added GridBoundColumns, then you would use _grid.GridBoundColumns instead of _grid.Binder.InternalColumns.
