How to color the cells in a datacolumn? Vb.net
Posted on 2004-04-14
I am new to vb.net, and I have a question regarding how to color-code the cells in a dataset. I have 2 tables in a dataset: revenue and expense. Now what I need is to color the cells based on their values.
This is an example of how the revenue table looks like:
1999 2000 2001
Shoes 97.5 55.6 78.5
Jewelry 105.1 ------ 97.5
Clothes ----- 15.5 14.8
bags 45.8 ----- 25.6
The dashes means that there are no data available. Now my problem is to color the fields according to their values. For example, for year 2001, I need to color the field with highest value to be red = RGB(255, 0, 0) and the lowest value to be black = RGB(0, 0, 0). Then the rest distribute the color evenly.
I tried to use the paint method from here, but that only work if you color the cell based on value range, HOW CAN I LOOP THROUGH THE COLUMN AND COLOR BASED ON THEIR VALUE?
Thanks in advance!
