Hi, I am trying to set bordercolor property as black like the following but it does not work

<SelectedItemStyle BorderColor="Black" BackColor="#C6D6EF"></SelectedItemStyle>

Do someone have any idea why bordercolor property fails?!

this works for me

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" >
            <RowStyle CssClass="GridView1" />
            <SelectedRowStyle BorderColor="Black" BackColor="#C6D6EF" />
            <Columns>
                <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

if you remove the selecteditem style and just click the select what happens?

The BackColor property works fine but BorderColor fails. Do BorderColor works fine for you?!

        DataGrid dg = (DataGrid)sender;

        DataGridItem dgr = dg.SelectedItem;

        foreach (TableCell cell in dgr.Cells)

            cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkGray;
            cell.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Solid;
