I have a Datagrid and create TableStyle and ColumnStyle for it. I want to change the backcolor of a entire row if the specific column of that row have one of my values.

ColA    ColB    ColC    ColD
1        A         a        Y
2        B         b        R
3        C         c         R
4        D         d        W
5        E         e         Y
6        F         f          W

I want to change the color of **entire** rows 1,5 to yellow.

I searched the EE and Net for it. But what I find is changing the color of a column not entire row.

Thanks for your help,

You can change row colors using following code. Put this code after filling your grid. (It should be in your page_load) Remember that first rows index is zero.

dataGrid.Items[0].Style["BACKGROUND-COLOR"] = "yellow";
dataGrid.Items[4].Style["BACKGROUND-COLOR"] = "yellow";

my Data Grid hasn't Items member. Maybe it was in Web Controls. I am using System.Windows.Form. I am developing Windows Application.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I visited your link before that I found it in EE solutions. It is about changing a cell not entire row.
