    Given <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Number, StringFormat=C}" />..
    If I use GetValueForItem, I get the formatted value (e.g. $1.00)..
    Is there a method so I can get "1" instead?

    Thank you,

    Hello Jan,

    You can get the desired value by using the GetValue method of the BindingExpressionHelper class. The class is defined in the Telerik.Windows.Controls namespace.

    var value = BindingExpressionHelper.GetValue(item, column.DataMemberBinding);

    Please let me know if this works for you.
