Right now the editor value binding that transfers the value between the editor control and the data source is impossible to change, and the best way to handle such a scenario would be to implement your own editor.
I agree that being able to supply a value converter for the column or its associated editor will make things much easier. We will definitely be adding a way to do that with just by setting a property. Thanks for the input!
