Hello-
I have a series of numbers being displayed in a RadGridView which need to be conditionally formatted.  It's financial data, so positive numbers need to be green and negative should be red and in parentheses.  I used Pavel Pavlov's approach to data conversion (using ConditionalFormattingBehavior : Behavior<RadGridView> and creating new bindings).  However, when I do this, the TextAlignment property gets reset.  I need the data to be right-justified.  I tried doing it in code (e.Row.Cells[2].TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Right;) but, it tells me that Telerik.Controls.GridView.GridViewCellBase.TextAlignment is obsolete/deprecated. 

Is there another way to reset the TextAlignment?

I'm using VS2010, SL4 & RadGridView v2.0.50727

Thanks!
-Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

Please check our new examples related to conditional styling and templates:
http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/Selectors/DataTemplateSelectors/CellTemplateSelector
http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GridView/Selectors/StyleSelectors/CellStyleSelector

If your columns are plain GridViewDataColumns with no templates you can cast cell.Content to TextBlock and apply desired formatting. Other possible approach will be to load different templates (with different TextBlock settings) using CellTemplateSelector column property.

thank you for your reply!  There is still some confusion.

Where is UnitPriceConverter getting defined?
Where is ConditionalDataTemplateSelector defined?
Where is the logic for defining which template to use?

Also, are there any examples of casting cell.Contents?

Thanks!

Thank you for the update, Vlad!

I have looked at the links you provided both online and downloaded the examples, however, the Example.cs looks overly simplified.  Shouldnt there be more to it?

Thanks,
Jeremy

I get this error when casting...

((TextBlock)e.Row.Cells[1].Content).TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Right;

Unable to cast object of type 'System.String' to type 'System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock'.

Thoughts?

Hi,

 Can you post this cell column declaration? Is it GridViewDataColumn?

Problem Description:
I have columns defined in my GridView for which I am using CellTemplateSelector. But when i do so I am unable to align text to "Right" in my tetxbox. Text Alignment value is not used.

<telerik:GridViewColumn.CellTemplateSelector>
    <local:D0_30Template>
        <local:D0_30Template.EmptyDataTemplate>
            <DataTemplate>
                <TextBlock TextAlignment="Right" ></TextBlock>
            </DataTemplate>
        </local:D0_30Template.EmptyDataTemplate>
    </local:D0_30Template>
</telerik:GridViewColumn.CellTemplateSelector>
