    Hello Martino,

    You cannot have different cell types for different rows. However, you can create a custom cell which contains all possible elements and just hide and show different elements upon a condition. Please, consider that the default data cell is enough in the described scenario where the difference is between text and image. I prepared a sample demonstrating this:
    void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        GridDataCellElement cell = e.CellElement as GridDataCellElement;
        if (cell != null && cell.ColumnInfo.Name == "Name")
            object value = cell.RowInfo.Cells["Check"].Value;
            bool isChecked = value != null ? (bool)value : false;
            if (isChecked)
                e.CellElement.Text = "";
                e.CellElement.Image = Resources.file;
                e.CellElement.Text = cell.Value != null ? cell.Value.ToString() : "";
                e.CellElement.Image = null;

    I hope it helps. If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to write back.
