Hi,
I added the below code for masking a column. The column has to display 9-digit number in this form ####-#####
But the column is displayed as  123456789 instead of  1234-56789

<telerik:RadGrid ID="rg_submitted_requests" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowSorting="True" GridLines="Both" CellPadding="0">
   <MasterTableView  AutoGenerateColumns="false">
    <Columns>
        <telerik:GridMaskedColumn Mask="####-#####" HeaderText="PAF #" DataField="PAF_NUMBER">                        
        </telerik:GridMaskedColumn>
    </Columns>
   </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>

Please let me know if there any issues with the above code.

Appreciate your help,
Mani

Hello Manikandan,

GridMaskedColumn displays exactly like an ordinary GridBoundColumn in regular mode and in edit mode,  it displays a RadMaskedTextBox control. Therefor you can use any of the following approaches to formatting your data values before they are displayed in grid cells.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridMaskedColumn Mask="####-#####" HeaderText="PAF #" DataField="PAF_NUMBER"
    DataFormatString="{0:####-#####}" UniqueName="PAF_NUMBER">
</telerik:GridMaskedColumn>

c#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
    {
        GridDataItem dataItem = (GridDataItem)e.Item;
        string originalText = dataItem["PAF_NUMBER"].Text;
        //format originalText here
        dataItem["PAF_NUMBER"].Text = originalText;
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi Princy,

I am having the same issue.

Could you please tell me how to format  SSN(Mask="###-##-####") from ItemDatabound.

Thanks.
