Formatting

You can use the CurrentCellChanged event to apply formatting for the current cell, while editing the data and also set the CelValueType to GetType(Double). Refer to the following code examples.

C#

//Hook the CurrentCellChaged event in Form_Load 
this.gridControl1.CurrentCellChanged += gridControl1_CurrentCellChanged;
void gridControl1_CurrentCellChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // change the format for the current cell 
    gridControl1.TableStyle.Format = "#,##0.00000";
    // check the value entered in the current cell is a type of double.
    gridControl1.TableStyle.CellValueType = typeof(double);
}

VB

'Hook the CurrentCellChaged event in Form_Load 
Private Me.gridControl1.CurrentCellChanged += AddressOf gridControl1_CurrentCellChanged
Private Sub gridControl1_CurrentCellChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    ' change the format for the current cell 
    gridControl1.TableStyle.Format = "#,##0.00000"
    ' check the value entered in the current cell is a type of double.
    gridControl1.TableStyle.CellValueType = GetType(Double)
End Sub
