Hello noman nadeem,

Typically RadGridView  would display any string as it is , without applying any additional formatting unless formatting is explicitly set.

Can you please paste the XAML related to RadGridView definition. Maybe there is a format string accidently left or something like that.

hi pavel,
this is the xaml for column

if i used DataFormatString="{}{0:G}"  then the heading "Career" shows like that "000000Career"
<telerik:GridViewDataColumn HeaderText="Heading" DataMemberBinding="{Binding headingname3}" DataFormatString="{}{0:G}"  />

if i used without DataFormatString="{}{0:G}"  then the heading "Career" shows like that "000000Career"
<telerik:GridViewDataColumn HeaderText="Heading" DataMemberBinding="{Binding headingname3}" />

no difference
which dataformatstring should i used please tell me i have only string not number type data.

i want to show my heading or data as it is like "Career" shows "Career" not "0000000Career"


Regards,
noman

Hi noman,

The grid is using standard String.Format to apply DataFormatString property - I'm not sure about standard format to handle your case. You can use IValueConverter instead!
