Please, can you tell me how can i fix that.

    Hello, Sebastian,

    Thank you for writing.  

    DecimalPlaces and FormatString properties ensure exactly how many decimal places should be shown in the spin editor and in the cell respectively. This means that if you have less decimal places than the value, they will be complemented. In case of greater number of decimal places, cell value will be rounded. If you want to prevent rounding when exceeding the decimal places and just cut off the exceeding digits, you are able to use CellFormatting event in order to manipulate e.CellElement.Text and e.CellElement.Value as you wish. Here is a sample code snippet:
    public RadForm1()
            this.radGridView1.CellFormatting += radGridView1_CellFormatting;
            GridViewDecimalColumn col = new GridViewDecimalColumn("Numeric");
            col.DecimalPlaces = 8;
            this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;
        int maxDecimalPlaces = 8;
        private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
            if (e.CellElement.ColumnInfo.Name == "Numeric" && e.RowIndex > -1)
                string text = null;
                int decimalPointIndex = e.CellElement.Text.IndexOf('.');
                if (decimalPointIndex > -1 && (e.CellElement.Text.Length - 1 - decimalPointIndex > maxDecimalPlaces))
                    text = e.CellElement.Text.Substring(0, decimalPointIndex + maxDecimalPlaces + 1);
                    e.CellElement.Value = decimal.Parse(text);

    Note that this is just a sample approach and it may not cover all possible cases. Feel free to modify it in a way which suits your requirement best.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
