Standard Formatting Mechanism

Display values can be formatted using the standard formatting mechanism described in MSDN. It allows you to format values using standard format patterns. For instance, a numeric value can be represented as a currency amount, a hexadecimal value, in scientific notation, etc. A date/time value can be represented in the standard Short Date. Long Date or Full Date/Time form.

Expanded Data Cells

To format cell values using this approach, use a column editor's EditPropertiesBase.DisplayFormatString property.
