I agree that the RadGridView
documentation should explain fully and clearly the mechanism for the control's data formatting. The FormatString

. The GridViewDateTimeColumn's CustomFormat
property is specific for GridViewDateTimeColumn
and is added for more convenient formatting of the column's editor value. It should be explained in the GridViewDateTimeColumn's
The GridViewDateTimeColumn's help article

event of RadGridView
. This approach is suitable for all RadGridView
