The datasource for my RAD Grid is a datatable with a column that is typed to System.Double. This column allows null. However when this datatable is bound to the grid it results in a

Conversion from type 'DBNull' to type 'Integer' is not valid

error. I am unable to trace the exact line where this error is raised. How do I specify that a grid column can have null data. If the column type is System.String, then the grid can handle nulls as designed. For numeric columns with nulls the grid bombs

Please advise

TIA

Hi Ramesh,

Can you please check whether the same error is generated when binding your source field column to a regular MS GridView instance on the page? If the exception is raised with RadGrid only, I will appreciate if you prepare a small working project, illustrating the abnormality, and send it enclosed to a formal support ticket. We will test/debug it locally and will get back to you with our findings.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your response. During the course of creating a sample project to reproduct the issue, I discovered that the error was in fact in my code and not the grid. The crytpic error message regarding DBNull and not seeing the break happen in my code led me on a tangent to suspect the issue to be in Telerik code. I have fixed my code and now the grid is working as intended

thanks
