This code works well to format the Gridview until I click Edit, thus placing the grid in edit-mode.

Q. How can I keep the gridview formatting in Edit-Mode or Cancel-mode?

By default, the formatting string is applied to the field value only when the data-bound control that contains the BoundField object is in read-only mode. To apply the formatting string to field values while in edit mode, set the ApplyFormatInEditMode property to true.
