    Within my gridview I have set the VerticalContentAlignment to be "Top", however the text within the columns is not aligned to the top of the cell. Please see attached screen shot.

    Hi madladuk,

    If you want to align vertically the content on the cell, you may try to define a style targeting the GridViewCell and set its VerticalContentAlignment property:

        <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell">
            <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Top" />

    All the best,

    This seems to work OK for when the cell is not in edit mode, however, when the cell is edited, the TextBox used for editing appears in the centre of the row, rather than at the top. See the attachment to see what I am referring to.

    Is there a simple way to centre the cell for display and editing modes?

    Hello Geoff,

    If you need to align the content of a GridViewCell in edit-mode, you have to edit its template and set the VerticalAlignment property of the PART_ContentPresenter to Top in this particular state (please refer to the attached picture).

    Also you may find attached sample project that demonstrates this approach.   

    Best wishes,
