Formatting Values Overview

Most DevExpress WPF controls accept data input and offer your end-users keyboard driven data entry wherever possible - along with flexible data representation formats. Easily apply numeric or date-time formatting to edit values to increase the usability of your WPF applications. You can use standard or custom format specifiers, composite or event-based formatting, format values via the Display Value Converter or use mask settings to enable formatted input.


Data-aware controls (e.g. DXGrid, DXPivotGrid, DXTreeList and editor controls shipped within the DXEditors Library) provide events that allow you to dynamically format values before they are displayed on-screen.
