I have a DataGridView which displays a object I've derived from DataSet.  In my object, I have an ArrayList if items, I've used to create DataRows in a DataTable, which is then displayed by the DataGridView.  I have also derived a class from DataGridViewTextBoxCell, to handle drawing my cells.  

Here's the problem.  The background color of a row, depends on a property of the an item in my original ArrayList of items.  Before sorting the rowIndex I get in the DataGridViewTextBoxCell Paint corresponds to the index into my ArrayList of items.  After the user sorts the table, it does not.  How do I map between these?   What is the easiest way?
