     public partial class Form1 : Form  
            private readonly DataTable dtMain;  
            public Form1()  
                dtMain = new DataTable();  
                radGridView1.DataSource = dtMain;  
            private void CreateSampleTable()  
                dtMain.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("column1", typeof(String)));  
                dtMain.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("column2", typeof(String)));  
                dtMain.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("column3", typeof(String)));  
            private void InsertValues ()  
                var drMain = dtMain.NewRow();  
                drMain["column1"] = "1";  
                drMain["column2"] = "One";  
                drMain = dtMain.NewRow();  
                drMain["column1"] = "2";  
                drMain["column2"] = "Two";  
                drMain = dtMain.NewRow();  
                drMain["column1"] = "3";  
                drMain["column2"] = "Three";  
            private void radGridView1_RowFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.RowFormattingEventArgs e)  
                var gvri = e.RowElement.RowInfo;  
                var rbApply = gvri.Cells["column3"] != null && gvri.Cells["column3"].CellElement != null ?  
                              gvri.Cells["column3"].CellElement.Children[0] as RadButtonElement : null;  
                if (rbApply != null)  
                    rbApply.Text = "Apply";  
                    rbApply.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;  

          I have a rad gridview windows control with two text columns and a button column. AllowAddNewRow is set to "True" for the Gridview. I have set the Text property of the button to "Apply" in RowFormatting event.There are three rows in the datasource.When the application is run, we can see the button text assigned for those three rows. But the RowFormatting event is not fired when the new row is selected, So the newly created row will have a button with blank text. Please help me on this.

    Hello Shamjith,

    When you create your button use the instance of GridViewCommandColumn:

    GridViewCommandColumn column = new GridViewCommandColumn("Settings", "Settings");
    column.DefaultText = "Apply";
    column.UseDefaultText = true;

    I tried using the Property Builder and setting the properties for my button columns, but it didn't work. Can this only be done during run-time?
