Im trying to change the color of a row in a DataGrid object. I dont want to change it acording to values in cells, i wish to change the color of the entire row at a given time at runtime.

Im having dificulties becouse this DataGrid object doenst have the common propreties and methods i can find in a regular vb application. This code is to be used in a Device Aplication to a Pocket PC in a Mobile 5 enviorment.

Thank you in advance,

I'm using vs2005, and to do this I would do something like :

        Dim iRow As Integer = 1
        For iCol As Integer = 0 To DataGridView.Rows(iRow).Cells.Count - 1
            DataGridView.Rows(iRow).Cells(iCol).Style.BackColor = Color.Aqua

Don't know about the pocket pc version though,
Hope this helps.

That is DataGridView not Mobile 5 DataGrid.  I don't believe that you can achieve what you want with that DataGrid.  Unfortunately, you can't override the default behavior of the DataGridTextBoxColumn to do your own painting.

Just thought the idea might be the same (ish).
