Property Value

Type Description
Style

The style applied to data cells.

Remarks

Important

To format grid cells based on specific conditions, use Conditional Formatting to gain better performance. Refer to the following topic for more information - How to Conditionally Set Background and Foreground for Grid Rows and Cells.

The CellStyle property specifies a theme-independent style applied to cells within the grid. To specify a cell style for a single column, use the ColumnBase.CellStyle property.

TargetType

Optimized Mode

In optimized mode (the default setting), set TargetType to LightweightCellEditor.

<dxg:GridColumn>
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>
...
<dxg:TableView>
    <dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" />
    </dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
</dxg:TableView>

Non-optimized Mode

If you disable the optimized mode, set TargetType to CellContentPresenter.

<dxg:GridColumn>
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:CellContentPresenter" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>
...
<dxg:TableView>
    <dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:CellContentPresenter" />
    </dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
</dxg:TableView>

Data Binding

Cell elements contain EditGridCellData objects in their DataContext.

Use the following binding paths to access cell values, columns, and ViewModel properties:

  • Value - access the current cell value;
  • Column - access the current column;
  • RowData.Row.[YourPropertyName] - access a property of an object from the ItemsSource collection;
  • Data.[FieldName] - access column values in Server Mode, access unbound column values;
  • View.DataContext.[YourPropertyName] - access a property in a grid’s ViewModel.
