Hi

I use the following code fill a datagridview called dgassets on load:

    Private Sub RetrieveAssets()

        Dim conn As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=" & Application.StartupPath & "\ITAssets.mdb")
        Dim adapter As New OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblAssets", conn)
        Dim dt As New DataTable("tblAssets")

        adapter.Fill(dt)

        dgAssets.DataSource = dt
       
        dgAssetsFormat()

    End Sub

How can I alternate the row colour for each record, ie grey for the 1st, white for the second and then back to grey for the 3rd.

Thanks

Set an AlternatingItem Style for white, and an ItemStyle for Grey.

<AlternatingItemStyle Color="White"/>
<ItemStyle Color="Grey"/>

there is a property you can access at design time in the datagridview called AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.
you can read about it at MSDN: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/txth0a6h.aspx
