How to: Apply an Icon Set Format to a Column


This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

This example demonstrates how to apply an icon set conditional formatting rule to the Total column in a GridControl.


  1. Create a new IconSetFormatCondition class instance.
  2. Set this object's FormatConditionBase.FieldName property to Total. This column provides values to test against the formatting rule and the specified format will be applied to this column.
  3. Assign one of the predefined icon sets to the FormatConditionBase.PredefinedFormatName property. All available format names are listed in the Predefined Format Names document.
  4. To apply a conditional formatting rule represented by the created IconSetFormatCondition object, add this object to the GridControl.FormatConditions collection.
using DevExpress.Mobile.DataGrid;
// ...

IconSetFormatCondition condition = new IconSetFormatCondition();
condition.FieldName = "Total";
condition.PredefinedFormatName = "Signs3IconSet";

grid.FormatConditions.Add (condition);
