Property Value

Type Default Description


A String value that specifies the display format. An empty string to display column values using default formatting.


Use the DisplayFormat property to apply formatting to column values, and add any static text to their textual representation. The general pattern for setting the DisplayFormat property value is shown below:

<custom static text>{0<:format specifier<precision specifier> >}<custom static text>

Here, the '{0}' character sequence is the column value's placeholder. The format specifier sets the formatting type (currency, scientific, etc). The precision specifier sets the number of characters to be displayed after the decimal point.

For instance, if displaying currency values within a column, set the DisplayFormat property to '{0:c2}'. If the cell value is 123, the formatted value representation will be '$123.00'.

For details on using format specifiers, see Format Specifiers.


Setting the DisplayFormat property to an empty string applies default cell value formatting.
