Hi,

i have a working DataGrid1 whose source is XML file.

lately, i realized that i could not able to use DateFormatString as the values returned from XML are all strings. (pls correct me if wrong)....below code doesn't apply any format
<asp:BoundField HeaderText="Start QTY" DataField="start_qty" DataFormatString="{0:N3}" ApplyFormatInEditMode="True" HtmlEncode="False"/>

can you pls suggest me how to convert from string to int or decimal

------- DataGrid -------
 rowDataSet.ReadXml(filepath);
            pnlGrid.DataSource = rowDataSet.Tables[0].DefaultView;
            pnlGrid.DataBind();
--------------------------------

 <asp:GridView ID="pnlGrid" runat="server" CellPadding="4" AutoGenerateColumns="False"                    EnableModelValidation="True" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None">
<FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                        <PagerStyle BackColor="#284775" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                        <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" />
                        <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#E2DED6" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                        <Columns>
                             <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Symbol" DataField="symbol" />
                          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Start QTY" DataField="start_qty" DataFormatString="{0:N3}" ApplyFormatInEditMode="True" HtmlEncode="False"/>
                            <asp:BoundField HeaderText="End QTY" DataField="end_qty" />
 </Columns>
</asp:GridView>

use OnRowDataBound event in gridview tag :

 <asp:GridView ID="pnlGrid" runat="server" OnRowDataBound="GVDatabound" ... etc...

and in code behind you can then do all you want with yours strings :

 Protected Sub GVDatabound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs)

        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

         dim start_qty  as string= e.Row.Cells(1).text

        e.Row.Cells(1).text = string.format("{0:N3}", start_qty )

        End If

    End Sub

hi Tuyau2poil,
 i tried ur code ...though the function is getting called n executed.....output remains the same.(unformated).

sample values from XML ...are as follows.....
<start_qty>0.000000000000000e+000</start_qty>
<end_qty>0.000000000000000e+000</end_qty>
<unrealized>1.595800080000000e+004</unrealized>

As you can see, i want to convert these values to decimal currency, if possible
