Telerik -

the textbox context menu item 'Conditional Formatting...' is a bit misleading ...  it seems like it really means Conditional style.  I have 2 fields in a dataset (value and rowtype).  one can have both numeric and char values, the other column is a format specifier string.  So depending on the value of the first column I want to format the second column.  currently I am doing this with expressions on the textbox but as you can imagine its alot of IIFs to test for the format specifier.

It would really help if i had a formatting button on the conditional expression dialog ...

photo attached ... see! ive already done 1/2 the work for you ;-)

Hi,

Thank you for the form face lift, Kelly :-)

The good news is that you can use expression based Format property using the Bindings property of the TextBox item used for the value data field.

The binding would be something like:
Property path: Format
Value: =IIf(IsNumeric(Fields.value), "{0:N2}", "")
(let IsNumeric be a User Defined Function)

The ConditionalFormatting property and dialog is named on the well known feature (see MS Excel for example), and has nothing in common with the Format property. It is a bit misleading, by the way.

For detailed information on property binding, see:

Edit Bindings Dialog
