I'm using VS2003, C#. I have a windows form with a datagrid and I would like to highlight the whole row based on the data on the first column. Thanks in advance.

Try this:

   if (this.dataGrid1[0, 0].ToString() == "Test")
      this.dataGrid1.Select(0);

 - dataGrid1[0, 0] = row #1, column #1
 - Select(0) selects row #1.

that will just select the row, I want to highlight multiple rows (not select), so that I can click on any cell and the highlight won't change.

Thanks.

Aaah, yes, you want to change the BackColor of the cells based on the value from another column, right?

I got it!  Here's how I did it...

protected override void Paint(System.Drawing.Graphics g, System.Drawing.Rectangle bounds, System.Windows.Forms.CurrencyManager source, int rowNum, System.Drawing.Brush backBrush, System.Drawing.Brush foreBrush, bool alignToRight)
                  {
                        // the idea is to conditionally set the foreBrush and/or backbrush
                        // depending upon some crireria on the cell value
                        // Here, we color the cell if the first column is True
                        try
                        {
                              
                              DataTable dtPaint;

                              DataRow drPaint;

                              dtPaint =  (DataTable)this.DataGridTableStyle.DataGrid.DataSource;

                              drPaint = dtPaint.Rows[rowNum];
                              


                              //If true then highlight
                              bool blnHighlight = Convert.ToBoolean (drPaint["HighlightRow"].ToString());


                              if ( blnHighlight)

                              {

                                    backBrush = new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush(bounds,

                                          Color.IndianRed,

                                          Color.IndianRed,

                                          System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.BackwardDiagonal);

                                    foreBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.White);

                              }


                        }
                        catch(Exception ex)
                        {
                              string x = ex.Message;
                        }
                        finally
                        {
                              // make sure the base class gets called to do the drawing with
                              // the possibly changed brushes
                              base.Paint(g, bounds, source, rowNum, backBrush, foreBrush, alignToRight);
                        }
                  }
