GridView Tips and Tricks

This article will contain a list of tips and tricks related to the using the GridView.

Formatting data using DataFormatString


I was having an issue with it not applying my format. If it doesn’t work its one of the 3 key reasons below.For me I did not have HtmlEncode set to false.

The key properties are as follows:

o HtmlEncode = "False" ensures that the formatting is applied when displaying the date field. Without it, the formatting doesn't apply for some unknown reason.

o ApplyFormatInEditMode = "True" ensures that the DataFormatString is also applied when you change to the Edit mode. Without it, the formatting is ignored in Edit mode.
