Dear Experts,

I use a grid from DevExpress on my form. What I would like is a methode to check
if a user enters an integer-value (f.e: 8) or a double value (f.e: 8,8) into the cells
of column called colValue (fieldname = "Value").

I wrote it in psuedo-code:

if the column fieldname = Value
if (IsMGDL == false || value is a interger-value)
then devide (/) the value with 18
if (IsMGDL == true|| value is a double-value)
then x the value  with 18

I have begun to do this myself and this is al I got:

private void gridView1_CustomColumnDisplayText(object sender, DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base.CustomColumnDisplayTextEventArgs e)
            if (e.Column.FieldName == "Value")
                if (Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL==false)
                    e.DisplayText = (value / 18).ToString();
                else if (Properties.Settings.Default.IsMGDL==true) 
                    e.DisplayText = (value * 18).ToString();

Who can help me?
