    How do you change the text alignment for the text displayed in a GridViewComboBoxColumn in a RadGridView?

    I've tried to set TextAlignment="Right" but the text in the combo is always left aligned.

    Hello Lee Weisenberger,

    Setting HorizontalContentAlignment instead of HorizontalAlignment will resolve the problem. 

    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}">
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell">
                <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Right"/>

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    When specifying a CellStyle as suggested above (using Build 2014.2.0617), I find that it also affects the placement of the editor control (RadComboBox) so that it no longer stretches to fit the width of the cell.  Specifying an EditorStyle or CellEditTemplate to override this behavior has no effect.  Is there another solution?

    I am trying to avoid creating a CellTemplate for this column as it complicates the databinding.

    I would suggest you to use a regular GridViewDataColumn and place a RadCombobox in its CellEditTemplate. Then you can set the TextAlignment property of the column to "Right":
    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}"
                                <telerik:RadComboBox ItemsSource="{Binding Clubs,Source={StaticResource MyViewModel}}"

    Please give it a try and let me know how it works for you.
