Formatting

In order to implement excel like account formatting options in grid control, you can make use of CurrencySymbols, CurrencyDecimalDigits property to set currency symbols and decimal digits. Alignment of text in the grid can be changed by using HorizontalAlignment property.

C#

//To remove currency symbol
gridControl1[row, col].CurrencyEdit.CurrencySymbol = "";
gridControl1[row, col].CurrencyEdit.CurrencySymbol = "";
 
//To change currency decimal digits
gridControl1[row, col].CurrencyEdit.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 2;
gridControl1[row, col].CurrencyEdit.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 3;
            
//To change alignment
gridControl1.ColStyles[col].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right;
gridControl1.ColStyles[col].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Center;

 

VB

'To remove currency symbol
gridControl1(row, col).CurrencyEdit.CurrencySymbol = ""
gridControl1(row, col).CurrencyEdit.CurrencySymbol = ""
 
'To change currency decimal digits
gridControl1(row, col).CurrencyEdit.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 2
gridControl1(row, col).CurrencyEdit.CurrencyDecimalDigits = 3
 
'To change alignment
gridControl1.ColStyles(col).HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right
gridControl1.ColStyles(col).HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Center
