Hi, i have a grid where I place my XML data called "Task". I wanted to know if there's a kind of ItemData or Value or something, obviously with a different name, where we can put background info for the task in the grid. Is this possible?

Example:

TextValue     BackgroundValue

Task 1         PriorityLvl/Rank
Task 2         PriorityLvl/Rank
Task 3         PriorityLvl/Rank

Not sure if this is clear.

I'm using the Grid control that's in VB. I don't know if Flex Grid and List View are something else, but whatever the basic Grid thing is in VB6 that's what I'm using.
