Show blank instead of zero

In a DataGridView I need to show a blank cell when the value in the cell is zero.

Any ideas?

Hi..
One option is to use the Cell Formatting Event
First define which column you want to set blank cell instead of zero like:
Private Sub DataGridView1_CellFormatting(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellFormatting
        If e.ColumnIndex = 1  Then 'or 2 or whatever
            If e.Value = 0 Then
                e.Value = ""
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
