Need to Format a zipcode into xx-x. - ASP.NET Data Grid Control

I guess that you can't do this with the property window of datagrid control. Probably need an itemdatabound event. How can I program an itemdatabound control to get a column (Zipcode) to look as such xx-x. It currently is in this format, . Thanks for any help. .....

    Jeff,
    It happens that the string formatting is the only part that does work for
    me. My problem is changing the cell background color, as in my previous
    post. This FormatCells method works for me if it is called by the
    DataGrid1_ItemDataBound event handler. The format specifier may be a little
    off, but the code certainly executes before the grid displays.

    ' The ItemDataBound event is handled for each row in datasource......
    Private Sub DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
    System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles
    DataGrid1.ItemDataBound

    ' FormatCells does get called for each row.....
    FormatCells(sender, e)
    End Sub


    Protected Sub FormatCells(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
    System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs)

    If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType =
    ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then

    e.Item.Cells(5).Text = String.Format("ddddd-dddd", zip)
