ok first off this is a desktop app I found a few solutions to this on the web but they all seem to only work for web application.

What I have is a datagrid comprised of 4 columns and numerous rows. whenever the second, third and forth cells in any row are equal to null I want to set the first cells font to bold. Any ideas?

hi toby

take a look at this link:

http://www.dotnet247.com/247reference/a.aspx?u=http://www.syncfusion.com/FAQ/WinForms/FAQ_c44c.asp

specifically faq 5.67.

in the code example that is associated with the above link you'll need to modify your FormatGridCells event handler to look something like this:

private void FormatGridCells(object sender, DataGridFormatCellEventArgs e)
{
if(dg[e.Row,1].ToString() == dg[e.Row,2].ToString() &&
   dg[e.Row,2].ToString() == dg[e.Row,3].ToString()
{
  e.TextFont = new Font(e.TextFont.Name, e.TextFont.Size, FontStyle.Bold);
}
}

hope this helps,

rye
