Well what you could do is still use a NumericEditor on the cell. You could derive from the NumericEditor class as demonstrated here : http://doc.xceedsoft.com/products/gridNET/doc/sources/deriving_from_the_celleditormanager_class.htm
Override getControlValueCore and setControlValueCore, you could then call a ToString() on the numeric value returned to that it is still a “string”.
I don’t have a sample that does this specifically however, this should work.
