CellValueType = int, Value = null

I need to have a cell that is initially empty, but that has a cellvaluetype of int. I find that if I set the cellvaluetype to int, but do not set the cellvalue to an integer, then I get the following exception: System.Exception: is not a valid value for Int32. ---> System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array. at System.String.get_Chars(Int32 index) at System.ComponentModel.BaseNumberConverter.ConvertFrom(ITypeDescriptorContext context, CultureInfo culture, Object value) I could ignore the cellvaluetype, ie leave it as text, but then I lose the built-in valuetype checking. Going further, I could also do my own validation, but that seems like I''m working against the grid rather than with it. Am I missing something obvious? This seems like a fairly common need: cells that have a an assigned type but that are blank until data is entered.

What version of our grid are you using? Unless I am missing something, I do not see a problem in trying to have CellValueType = typeof(int) and CellValue = null in this sample that has both a GridControl and a GridDataBoundGrid with such cells. forum_cellvaluetype_6389.zip
