Formatting datagridview cells after databinding
I have a datagridview in a control. After databinding I want to make some changes to the text of some of the cells. I have tried doing it on cellFormatting and dataBindingComplete both cause a loop. Is there an easy way of doing this?
how is the datagridview databound? if it's to a DataTable or DataSet, you can edit those before binding.
If not, then sorry, DataBindingComplete is probably your next option. Unlike the GridView in ASP.Net which allows you to use code to handle each individual row as it's databound, the DataGridView with Windows Programming does not.

This is a Windows Forms application and I am binding to a DataTable. The control I have consists of the datagridview and some buttons. The datagridview gets bound to various datatables provided by the form on which the control is used. I was hoping to deal with a particular column in the controls and not have to pre-format the column in the datatable every time I use the control.
The formatting I am doing is stripping out RTF tags. Unfortunately this is not very efficient in SQL.
Try switching to an unbound control and load it by programming code at which time you strip out the RTF tags.
I don't answer coding questions via PM or Email. Please post a thread in the appropriate forum section.

I've done something similar. I do a "for each row" in the datagrid and fix the text. Problem is I have to do this from outside of the control and every time I use the control. I was hoping to build it into the control that it fixed itself as it bound.
you can make your own control.
I tried to create a custom RTF column but couldn't get it to work. I see there is a new article out regarding this. I was going to review it shortly.
Basically I inherited a textbox column and then I have a function which creates an instance of the RichTextBox, taking the RTF text and returning it as plain text. This would have created a non-formatted but human readable text column. Problem is that the textbox cell leaves enough space for the full RTF text. Once I formatted the cell content, I was left with a chunk of white space at the bottom of each cell.
