Hello,
I would like to check if there is a direct way to display masked text on a rad grid.
There is a telerik:GridMaskedColumn, but it looks like it works only for edit mode. We can use template with RadMaskedTextBox control, but it doesn’t look consistent with the other columns.

Thanks,
Ivo

Indeed the GridMaskedColumn type will filter the user entry when you edit a particular item in the grid. The other option I discovered is to put directly RadMaskedTextBox in item template of template column. Choose the approach in accordnace with your needs.

Hello guys,

The most straightforward approach is to have a read-only RadMaskedTextBox in the ItemTemplate of a GridTemplateColumn, and an editable RadMaskedTextBox in the EditItemTemplate.

The other option to go with would be to use a regular GridMaskedColumn, but to manually mask your data values after the grid is bound. You can use RadGrid's ItemDataBound event for that:

protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
    {
        GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item;
        string originalValue = item["MaskedColumnUniqueName"].Text;
        //implement masking logic here and update originalValue to masked value
        item["MaskedColumnUniqueName"].Text = originalValue;
    }
}


Kind regards,
