Grid formatting

Hi Experts,

I have DataGrid that is bound by : DataGrid1.DataBind(); command
The question is how to make odd rows white and even rows red ?
Is there built-in method for this ?

Yeah it's the AlternateItemTemplate, just set its color to whatever you want.
Sorry it's: AlternatingItemStyle

<AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="#66FFFF"></AlternatingItemStyle>

Good Luck
Here's a bigger example:

<asp:DataGrid id="DataGrid1" style="Z-INDEX: 116; LEFT: 624px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 136px"
<AlternatingItemStyle BackColor="#00FFFF"></AlternatingItemStyle>
Are you using VS .Net? if yes then you can do it one of the following way:

Right Click Your DataGrid --> Property Builder --> Format -->  Expand Items
  --> Modify the Alternating Item

2) Use AutoFormat!
Right Click Your DataGrid --> AutoFormat --> Select any...
