Exception Condition

The value of the CellTemplate property is null.

The MaxInputLength property does not affect the length of text entered programmatically through the cell's value or through cell formatting. It affects only what the user can input and edit.

Getting or setting this property gets or sets the MaxInputLength property of the object returned by the CellTemplate property. Setting this property also sets the MaxInputLength property of every cell in the column. To override the specified value for individual cells, set the cell values after you set the column value.
