How to set Hex formatting of integer cell in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

Integer format as hex decimal

As per GridControl architecture the hex decimal format like {0x{0:X4} cannot be assigned by using Format property. As we have used IFormattable interface to convert the format to string, the format has to be converted from String.Format method. In the below sample, HexDecimal format to the integer cell has been set using the QueryCellInfo event.


this.gridControl1.QueryCellInfo += new GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(gridControl1_QueryCellInfo);
void gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
   if (e.ColIndex == 3 && e.RowIndex>0)
       e.Style.Text = string.Format("0x{0:X4}", 255);



Private Me.gridControl1.QueryCellInfo += New GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(AddressOf gridControl1_QueryCellInfo)
Private Sub gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
   If e.ColIndex = 3 AndAlso e.RowIndex>0 Then
    e.Style.Text = String.Format("0x{0:X4}", 255)
   End If
End Sub
