I want to be able to format my DateTime Column in the grid, How do we format it?

I have looked in the documentation and it says it is there, I just don't know how to use it.

Hello Chase Florell,

Thank you for contacting me.

You format the text inside the data column by modifying the DataTextFormatString property of the GridViewDataColumn.

Refer to the following code snippet:

GridViewDateTimeColumn column = (GridViewDateTimeColumn)this.radGridView1.Columns["Date"]; 
column.DataTextFormatString = "{0:dd.mm.yy}"

We agree that our documentation needs improvement in some areas and are continuing our work to update it for the upcoming Q1 2008 release.

Do not hesitate to write me, if you have other questions.

All the best,
Jack
