How can I customize the error message?


When an invalid data format or data type is entered, an error message is displayed. The error message is like xx is not a valid value for Double. This error message can be customized.


You can handle the CurrentCellValidating event, validate and set the error message. The following code example gives a customized error message when a value other than double is entered.



On applying the properties, the grid looks like the following screenshot.
