Is it possible to Convert each DataGridview row from Rtf to Plain Text?


  • Have a database with 3 columns. The third one contains rtf text and is displayed in a datagridview control. I would like to change the display from /rtf/#$@$ etc to Plain text (dont need to be format). Is it possible? How? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Denis,

    I'm afraid you need to provide more details for the original display in the 3rd column, What does this column show? With some special symbols?

    Anyway, setting format is the most efficient way to handle such problems:

    If you do not want to do it with format, please provide more information and some code for your question.
