There are five column types used to present specific data types (Boolean, Date-Time, Numeric, Lists and Text), one column type that provides masking capabilities for text values, and one column type for custom data presentation via templates. Cell values are edited using data editors. Each column type stores specific settings responsible for the data editor's functionality. A cell's editor is created when an end-user starts to edit the cell's value and is automatically destroyed when editing is completed. This dramatically increases the application's performance.

The following masking options are available: GridMaskColumn.Mask, GridMaskColumn.MaskCulture, GridMaskColumn.MaskIgnoreBlank, GridMaskColumn.MaskPlaceHolder, GridMaskColumn.MaskSaveLiteral, GridMaskColumn.MaskShowPlaceHolders GridMaskColumn.MaskType and GridMaskColumn.MaskUseAsDisplayFormat.
