Number in decimal format

You can set the number with decimal format programmatically for a particular column in a GridControl, by setting the ColStyles[index].Format property.

C#

// used to display one decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.0’) 
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[1].Format = "N1";
// used to display two decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.00’)
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[2].Format = "N2";
// used to display three decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.000’)
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[3].Format = "N3";
// used to display the default currency symbol "$" and two decimal precision ( e.g ‘$#.00’).
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[4].Format = "C";

VB

' used to display one decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.0’) 
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(1).Format = "N1"
' used to display two decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.00’)
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(2).Format = "N2"
' used to display three decimal precision ( e.g ‘#.000’)
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(3).Format = "N3"
‘used to display the default currency symbol "$" and two decimal precision ( e.g ‘$#.00’).
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(4).Format = "C"
