 Is there a way to center the 'X' icon on the center of the column 'Remover' ? It's placed on the left and i cannot find a way to move it to the center, image of the grid attached. Thanks anyway, any comments about a better way to do this button column are appreciated too. Thanks

Hello Flames,

Thank you for writing.

To align the image in the middle of the button, you should subscribe to the CellFormatting event of RadGridView and set the ImageAlignment property to "MiddleCenter". For example:
void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    GridCommandCellElement cmdCell = e.CellElement as GridCommandCellElement;
 
    if (cmdCell != null)
    {
        cmdCell.CommandButton.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;
 
        if (e.Column.Name == "column3")
        {
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = Properties.Resources._1353922628_home;
        }
        if (e.Column.Name == "column4")
        {
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = Properties.Resources._1353922617_delete;
        }
    }
}

Attached is a demo project that comprises the code above.

I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to write back if you have further questions.

Kind regards,
Anton

this is working fine with C#, but when I convert this to VB its showing error. Trycast block not working for this. is there any workaround for VB.net?

Private Sub radGridView1_CellFormatting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs)
    Dim cmdCell As GridCommandCellElement = TryCast(e.CellElement, GridCommandCellElement)
 
    If cmdCell IsNot Nothing Then
        cmdCell.CommandButton.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
 
        If e.Column.Name = "column3" Then
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = Properties.Resources._1353922628_home
        End If
 
        If e.Column.Name = "column4" Then
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = Properties.Resources._1353922617_delete
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Hello, LEON, 

You can find below the converted VB.NET code snippet how to center the image for the command cell element: 

Private Sub RadGridView1_CellFormatting(sender As Object, e As CellFormattingEventArgs)
    Dim cmdCell As GridCommandCellElement = TryCast(e.CellElement, GridCommandCellElement)
 
    If cmdCell IsNot Nothing Then
        cmdCell.CommandButton.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
 
        If e.Column.Name = "CommandColumn1" Then
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = My.Resources.Camera48
        End If
 
        If e.Column.Name = "CommandColumn2" Then
            cmdCell.CommandButton.Image = My.Resources.calendar
        End If
    End If
End Sub

I hope this information helps.
