I have a gridview -  I am trying to add text to a cells value when the gridview is loading by using the formatting event. Bu unfortunately the app does not like what I have done at all :D Does anyone know how to append text to the end of the value in a gridview cell
 private void gvDataWords_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
            Char degree = (Char)176;
            if (e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thevalue"].Value != null)
                string title = e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thelabel"].Value.ToString();
                //if(title == "Temperature" && tempMultiplier == "1")
                int myVal = Int32.Parse(e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thevalue"].Value.ToString());
                e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thevalue"].Value = Convert.ToString(myVal) + degree + " C";
                //if ((string)e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thelabel"].Value == "Temperature" && tempMultiplier == "1")
                   // e.CellElement.RowInfo.Cells["thevalue"].Value = Convert.ToString(thevalue.Value + "°");

What versions of .Net are you using and what version of Visual Studio? What control are you using, is it a DataGridView, or have you got a third-party GridView from somewhere?

Is your gridview databound???
If yes, then you should not directly modify the content...
