Hi,

I've not been using Telerik for very long, so this may be an obvious one...

I’m using a Grid control to display some percentages, which are stored in the database as decimal values  (0.02, 0.33, etc.)

I have set the DataFormatString of the appropriate columns in my grid to a percentage format - {0:0.00%} so that the values are displayed as whole percentages rather than decimals.

However, when the user opens up my edit form, I want to replicate the same behaviour in the RadNumericTextBoxes so that the user sees a percentage value (e.g.  “20%”), can input a new percentage, but the textbox will return the decimal value back to the data source (0.02).

Is this possible with the existing control, or do I have to create a specialised custom control?


Thanks,

Shane

Hello Shane,

You can use GridNumericColumn with NumericType set to Percent:
<telerik:GridNumericColumn NumericType="Percent" ...
