Property Value

Type Description

The template for the column’s cells.


The CellDisplayTemplate property allows you to specify custom content and change the appearance of cells in individual columns. To define a common template for cells of all Grid columns, use the DxGrid.DataColumnCellDisplayTemplate.

The CellDisplayTemplate property accepts a GridDataColumnCellDisplayTemplateContext object as the context parameter. You can use the parameter’s members to get information about a column cell (DataColumn, Value, DisplayText, HighlightedDisplayText, VisibleIndex). You can also access the Grid object and use its members to obtain additional information about the Grid.

For more information about templates in the Grid component, refer to the following topic: Templates in Blazor Grid.


The following example displays the More Info… links in cells of a column bound to the EmployeeId field. Users can click these links to view details about data rows in a pop-up window.
