ASP.Net Troubleshooting

I've set the DataFormatString on a gridview but nothing is happening by Chance1234
Posted: 15 Jun 07

You need to add the following line above the DataFormatString


<asp:BoundField DataField ="TestMePercent">
DataFormatString="{0:p0}" />

HtmlEncode is a property that was added to prevent CSS attacks. Setting this property to false, allows the DataFormatString to be applied.
