Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItemEventArgs OnRowDataBound Property

To get or set property values for client API properties, you must call property accessor methods that are named with the get_ and set_ prefixes. For example, to get or set a value for a property such as cancel, you call the get_cancel or set_cancel.

This event will be raised for each grid item which is about to be bound on the client. Can be used to modify/extract the data from the respective row cells or apply custom formatting to some of the cells based on their values.
