Hi,

As per our requirement we are creating a Rad Grid programmatically(Telerik DLL Version 2009.3.1103.35).
We have added a GridMasked Column and provided it with data  that is alha numeric(String Datatype.eg  AC2334565).
The mask value is set to "(###) ## ###".
But when i execute the code this is not applied to the data and it show plain with formatting.
Here is my code snippet:
               objGridMaskedColumn = New Telerik.GridMaskedColumn
                With objGridMaskedColumn
                    .UniqueName = cColNameTelephone
                    .HeaderText = "Auth Code"
                    .DataField = "AuthCode"
                    .Mask = "(###) ## ###"
                End With
                gridSample.MasterTableView.Columns.Add(objGridMaskedColumn)

My requirement is that i need to store the data in the database with any format.But while displaying the same text on grid i want to apply formatting to it.As per my understanding GridMasked Column was for  that purpose.
The same can be seen in below demo for Masked Column: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/generalfeatures/columntypes/defaultcs.aspx


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Aayam

Hello Aayam,

The mask is applied in Edit mode only. You could use (if appropriate) the DataFormatString property to set your own custom formatting.

As to the aforementioned demo - if you look at the HomePhone field (Employees table in Northwind) you will notice that the values are already formatted according to that mask.

Custom Numeric Format Strings
