Hello. I dynamically build a drop down list inside of a datagrid that I want to apply a backcolor to. Right now I'm applying the color to the entire dropdown, but is it possible to apply the color only to the first item in the drop down list? I will always want only the first one highleighted regardless of what name/value pair happens to be the first item. It would look nicer than having the entire thing colored when expanding the list

Here is how I'm building the list:

ddl.DataSource = ds;
ddl.DataTextField = "product_shortdesc";
ddl.DataValueField = "pproduct_id";
ddl.Visible = true;
ddl.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
ddl.DataBind();

thanks in advance!!

Is this ASP.NET? If yes, it is not possible. You can try to render the elements in several controls, but you will lose the functionality of the DropDownList, so I don't think there is a practical possibility to do that.
