I have a simple RadGrid bound to a DataTable retrieved from a SQL database with a simple "SELECT * FROM <table_name>" query.
One of the table's columns stores XML strings.

My problem is that the corresponding RadGrid column does not display the XML string itself; it displays only the XML element values one after another.

E.g.  say the database value in column X is:
    "<root><username>foo</username><password>bar</password></root>".
The RadGrid displays in its column X:
    "foo bar".

Is it possible for the RadGrid to show the actual XML string itself?

Many thanks.

Hello,

You need to set the HtmlEncode property of the column to true.
