GridView

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Controls' started by Victor Rodriguez, Jun 1, 2007.

  1. Is there a way to format data using {0:c} on columns that are autogenerated
    using coding?

    Thanks,

    Victor

  2. Hi Victor,

    From your description, you're wantting to use the AutoGenerateColumns
    feature of GridView control and do some formatting of the databindign value
    in each auto-generated column, correct?

    Based on my experience, since autogenerated columns are not accessible from
    the GridView.Columns colleciton (during Init and Load event), we can not
    programmatically set column's format setting. However, you can still use
    RowDataBound event and manually do your own formatting or customization
    against the bound data in code behind. e.g.

    ===================
    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
    {
    DataRowView drv = (DataRowView)e.Row.DataItem;
    e.Row.Cells[0].Text = string.Format("id_{0}",
    e.Row.Cells[0].Text);
    }
    }

    ==============

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,

    Victor,

    You can access autogenerated columns in the RowCreated event, and make any
    changes there.

    Something along the lines of (psuedo-code):
    If (e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow) Then
    e.Row.Cells(1).Format = "{0:c}" End IfHope this helps,
