Infragistics UltraGrid - how to display #1/1/1800# as blank ( as if null )

IvanGB asked

Hi all.

My UltraGrid uses a bindingsource. All datetimes which are null in SQL Server are delivered to the bindingsource as #1/1/1800#

I would like Ultrawingrid to display this date as blank as it would a null from source.

Also, if the date is null in the grid ( i.e. blanked out ) I would like to update the data source to the date #1/1/1800# ( the framework takes care of getting that date back into the backend as a null )

This seems like it should be a trivial matter but I can find no documentation on just where to intervene so the grid will see a particular date as a null and save a null as a particular date.

Thanks in advance.
