Hello.

I have a Windows Form and a RadGridView (with default theme), I added some columns manually using the RadGridView Property Builder (not from a database table or any datasource) and then I added a GridViewCommandColumn.

The problem is when I set the TextAlignment property of  Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCommandColumn to MiddleCenter (with DefaultText = "Print", UseDefaultText = True), the alignment doesn't change and the text in the GridViewCommandColumn is always aligned to MiddleLeft.

am I setting the TextAlignment in the wrong place?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Judas Trujillo,

You have set the TextAlignment at the right place. Unfortunately, there is an issue with the GridViewCommandColumn. It does not respond to changes in the value of the TextAlignment property. We will fix this in our next service pack.

Thank you for reporting this issue. For the time being, you can use the workaround shown in the code below (You must include the both lines to enforce layout update):

 
this.radGridView1.CellFormatting += new CellFormattingEventHandler(radGridView1_CellFormatting); 
 
private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e) 
    if (e.CellElement is GridCommandCellElement) 
    { 
        if (e.CellElement.Children.Count > 0 && e.CellElement.Children[0] is RadButtonElement) 
        { 
            ((RadButtonElement)e.CellElement.Children[0]).TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.BottomRight; 
            ((RadButtonElement)e.CellElement.Children[0]).TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter; 
        } 
    }
