How do I get the display text of a cell? (The output of the CellFormatting() event.) Everything seems to return the value in the data source.

Hello Jay,

Thank you for contacting us.

In the CellFormatting event you should be able to get information via the e.CellElement.
Text property.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the response Peter.

Yes, I can get the cell text from inside the CellFormatting event. The problem is I can't get the cell text from outside the CellFormatting event.

For example, when I'm trying to export the grid to an Excel file, the CellFormatting event does not help unless I can somehow call it for each cell. In order to call CellFormatting() I need a CellFormattingEventArgs object, but I don't know how to make one of these. I need a GridRowElement for each cell, but I don't know how to get a GridRowElement from my RadGridView object.

Hi Jay,

Thank you for the clarifications.

You can access the Cell visual element's 
Text property only in the CellFormatting event because RadGridView is virtualized control and a few visual items (for example 25) represents many logical items (the whole table) e.g. the visual items are reused. In the other places you can access only the Value property from the logical items.

Should you have any other questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
Peter
