I have a GridViewSummaryItem for Total, but it aligns to the center while the data rows align to the right. How do I get the summary Item to align right? I created the summary row and item using the designer (see attached screenshot).

I couldn't figure out how to do it from the designer, but from another thread, I used the cellformatting event. If anyone knows how to format from the designer property, please post! Thanks!

 


		private void dgvPOItems_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
		{
			if (e.CellElement is Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridSummaryCellElement)
			{
				e.CellElement.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
			}
		}

Hello, Bob,

Due to the UI virtualization in RadGridView, cell elements are created only for currently visible cells and are being reused during operations like scrolling, filtering, grouping and so on. That is why the control offers the CellFormatting/ViewCellFormatting events which are purposed to customize the cell elements according to your requirements. It is not possible to specify the text alignment for the summary items at design time. You should do it programmatically.

In order to prevent applying the formatting to other columns' cell elements (because of the cell reuse), all customization should be reset for the rest of the cell elements.  

        private void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        {
            GridSummaryCellElement summaryCell = e.CellElement as GridSummaryCellElement;
            if (summaryCell != null)
            {
                e.CellElement.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
            }
            else
            { 
                e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.TextAlignmentProperty, ValueResetFlags.Local);
            }
        }

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
