I am using vb.net, datagridview.

I need a way or code to set a column on the datagridview to be set to currency.

I tried setting the column format using the designer on the gridview settings and set it to currency format. But even then when i enter any numbers into that, whether those numbers have decimal or not the numbers just get added as numbers, they don't have the currency symbol next to it and even don't get decimal points when i just enter a whole number

Hope i was clear with my question

thanks in advance.

If your datagridview is not databound, then you will have to set the column type before this happens (else the datagridview assumes thevalue is a string!) Add this inyour form load event
DataGridView1.Columns(0).ValueType = GetType(Decimal)

Open in new window

to apply to your DataGridView1 in the first column
Or in the designer
