I'm using SSDBGrid to display data. I wanna change color (backcolor and forecolor) of the cells which meet some conditions (eg. quantity exceed 100). Could any body show me how to change the color of a cell?

Thanks a bunch

you need to create a StyleSets (where you can set backcolor, forecolor, and ....)in the grid

"24Hours", "ActiveColumn" - names for the style set

and use the following event to change color:

Private Sub DBGridSelect_RowLoaded(ByVal Bookmark As Variant)
Dim i As Integer

  If DateDiff("d", Format(DBGridSelect.Columns("Date Received").Text, "mm/dd/yyyy"), Now) > 1 Then
    For i = 0 To DBGridSelect.Cols - 1
      DBGridSelect.Columns(i).CellStyleSet "24Hours"
    Next i
  Else
    For i = 0 To DBGridSelect.Cols - 1
      DBGridSelect.Columns(i).CellStyleSet "ActiveColumn"
    Next i
  End If

End Sub
