I'm trying to display a column in a gridview using the Bind() function. The column needs to be displayed in percentage format  eg 78%. The gridview code snippet is below. It does not work.

I've tried the following formats
Bind("Lab", "{0:Pn}")
Bind("Lab", "{0:#%}")
Bind("Lab", "{0:P}")


<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Lab">
                        <itemstyle horizontalalign="Center" />
                        <itemtemplate>
                            <asp:Label id="glblLab" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Lab", "{0:Pn}") %>'></asp:Label> 
                        </itemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>

Didn't work. I found the solution myself. I wrote a function that formats the return in percentage
Gridview:
FormatPercentage(Convert.ToString(Eval("Lab")))

Codebehind:
    public string FormatPercentage(string Value)
    {
        return Value + "%";
    }
