Is there a way to have the grid display a value in the column other than the underlying objects .ToString()?

Hi Sean Fuhrmann,

Our default cell editor is TextBox editor that is why in most of our examples the RadGridView control displays
converted to string values of the underlying objects. If you take a closer look at our CardStyleRows example (under GridView\Custom Row Layout) you will notice that our grid supports other ways of displaying values.

If this is not the scenario you are asking for, I recommend you to look at our DataBinding example and select the PropertyPaths datasource where the binding is done without calling the ToStirng() method of the underlying objects.

Sincerely yours,
