I'm using RadGridView to display DataTable.DataView collections.  In the underlying data, it's perfectly valid for some of the fields to be null.  However, rather than simply displaying those fields as a "blank" cell in the grid, I'd prefer to display a predefined string (say, "<null>" for example).  Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

One possible restriction on a solution is that the grid is used to display "random" DataView's and auto-generates the columns for each.  So, the solution would need to work in that circumstance.

Thanks for any advice.

Jeff

Hello Jeff,

In order to display a value different than the bound one you should apply a Converter to the binding. As your columns are auto generated, you could subscribe for RadGridView's AutoGeneratingColumn event and additionally apply a converter when needed.
