I want to show a CheckBox column without a box around it (just the tick or empty). But i am not sure how to style this. My GridviewCheckBoxColumn is readonly in this case so i want to just show a Tick mark when the file is true otherwise leave blank. Here is the code where i add the column to radgridview:
Please help
Thanks
GridViewCheckBoxColumn colIsActive = new GridViewCheckBoxColumn("IsActive");
 colIsActive .Width = 50;
 colIsActive .HeaderText = "Active";
 colIsActive .ReadOnly = true;
 colIsActive .WrapText = true;
 //colIsActive .style???= no box around ???
 _radGV.MasterTemplate.Columns.Add(colIsActive );

Hello Anu,

Thank you for writing.

You can use the ViewCellFormatting event in order to access the RadCheckBoxCellElement and hide the desired Border and Fill primitives. Here is an example:
void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    GridCheckBoxCellElement checkBoxCell = e.CellElement as GridCheckBoxCellElement;
    if (checkBoxCell != null)
    {
        RadCheckBoxEditor editor = checkBoxCell.Editor as RadCheckBoxEditor;
        RadCheckBoxEditorElement element = editor.EditorElement as RadCheckBoxEditorElement;
        element.Checkmark.Border.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
        element.Checkmark.Fill.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
    }
}

I hope that you find this information helpful. If there is anything else we can assist you with, do not hesitate to contact us.
