    I need to change the font for one column of my RadGridView in runtime. Is this possible?
    If Yes, can you help me with the code in VB.NET?

    Hi Isb-Developer,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can use the CellFormatting event of the RadGridView. Consider the following code snippet which demonstrates this:

    Private m_boldFont = New Font("Helvetica", 10, FontStyle.Bold)
    Public Sub New()
      AddHandler Me.RadGridView1.CellFormatting, AddressOf RadGridView1_CellFormatting
    End Sub
    Private Sub RadGridView1_CellFormatting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CellFormattingEventArgs)
      If e.ColumnIndex = 1 Then
        e.CellElement.Font = Me.m_boldFont
        e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.FontProperty, ValueResetFlags.Local)
      End If
    End Sub

    Note that the creation of a Font is a heavy operation and can lead to memory leaks. It is best to create one font and use it across the application.

    I hope this will help you. If you have further questions, I would be glad to help. Best wishes,
