    You may format the cells using the CellFactory. Please refer to the following demo sample for reference:

    Hope it helps!

    Hello Manish,
    Thanks for the answer, im not sure i can use the CellFactory for my problem. But maybe you can help if i explain it a little more.

    I have an object for each cell in my grid, and im building my grid unbound.
    Each cell have following properties.


    Is there a way to parse my cell objects to the CellFactory, and set the formatting and backcolor there or is that not posible?.

    Hope it describes the problem a little better :).

    Best Regards,

    Hi Emil,
    Please refer to the following demo sample for reference which has the MyCell class having Value, BackColor, Format and Edited property and the FlexGrid values are set and formatting is done using Unbound mode with CellFactory.

    Thanks for the great demo, this is exactly what im looking for.
    There is now a different problem, when i try and edit my cell i get the name of the class. When i would like to get the value of the object.

    Hi Emil,
    For this, we need to override the OnCellEditorCreated and OnEditEnded method for GridCellFactory.
    Please refer to the attached sample for reference.

    I seem to have run into a new problem after some testing, when i select a cell, and want to start typing in a quick edit fashion, the first input I enter is dropped and the cell becomes editable. Is there a way to enable quick edit when using the cellfactory and the OnCellEditorCreated.

    Hi Emil,
    For this, we need to write a JS function to retain the first character input. This method should be called once the page is rendered.
    Please refer to the attached sample and the following code snippet:
    function Editor() {
    var grid = document.getElementById("grid-wrapper");
    grid.addEventListener("keydown", function (e) {
    var _inputs = grid.querySelectorAll("input");
    setTimeout(function () {
    var inputs = grid.querySelectorAll("input");
    if (inputs[1] && _inputs.length == 1) {
    _inputs = 2;
    inputs[1].value = inputs[0].value;
