How to format the columns while auto-generating the columns in the SfDataGrid?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfDataGrid |
.NET Framework: 4.5

You can format the column by handling the AutoGenerateColumn event that is fired when the columns are auto-generated and the SfDataGrid.AutoGenerateColumns is set to true. AutoGeneratingColumnArgs provides the data for the AutoGenerateColumn event. From the AutoGeneratingColumnArgs.Column, you can get the auto-generated column to format.


When the auto-generated column is GridTextColumn, you can format by setting the DisplayBinding to the column.


When the auto-generated column is GridNumericColumn, GridDateTimeColumn, or GridPercentColumn, the column can be formatted by using the properties exposed to that particular column.

For example, in the following code example, auto-generated GridNumericColumn is formatted by using the GridNumericColumn.NumberDecimalDigits property.


To apply custom format to the auto-generated column, set the DataTemplate to e.Column.CellTemplate.
