Hi,
  
I am using radgridview in a project.   If the column contains fullstop ( '.' character) then the value is not getting displayed for that column though the value is saved in database.
  
Is there any workaround to resolve this issue?
  
Thanks
Balaji

I'm assuming by 'if the column contains fullstop' you are referring to the column name.



IMHO, the "workaround" is not to use '.' within a column name.


Depending on what you are doing (databinding, loading from a database etc) the '.' has a special meaning qualifing a column.

You run into all kinds of weird escaping problems when you want to maintain column names containing a '.' in a database and

through different database access technologies.

You can always set the column header to a different string than the column name.



If that's not covering your problem, you have to give us more Information on what you are doing.

Erwin

Hi Erwin,
 
Thanks for your information.  As we are creating columns dynamically we had used the text (from DB) for both headertext as well as column name.  It would be better to filter the text and assign the column name separately.
 
As you said avoiding "." is the correct solution.

Hi guys,

I also agree that avoiding the fullstop is the right way to go.
