    Hi All,

    I use datatable as datasource to connect to gridview. Now I would like all content in column 2 have an icon. What do I need to do ?

    Hi Craig,

    Thank you for writing.

    If the images are coming from your data source, you can use the GridViewImageColumn.
    If you want to have icon and text or only icon, you can use the CellFormatting event. Here is an example:
    private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
      if (e.Row is GridViewDataRowInfo)
        e.CellElement.Image = myImage;
        e.CellElement.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;
        e.CellElement.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
        e.CellElement.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;

    I hope this will be useful for you. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
