I am working on my first VB.Net windows app (mainly do web apps) and have been spoiled on the use of a repeater and total customization of the look and feel with it. Is there a repeater control of some sort for a windows app or does anyone know how I can make the datagrid at least look a little better (alternating row colors or something)?

Hi,

I've never been that happy with the datagridview (I'm assuming you are using .NET 2.0 and the datagridview, not the datagrid), and it can be fairly tough getting it looking good with the out of the box implemenation.

I can't help you much with this sorry, but I can tell you that to do the alternating row colours you would set the AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle property.

If you are using .NET 1.1 and the DataGrid then I'm afraid I'm not sure.

Hope this helps

Nick
