Hi all,

I have a gridview, which pulls news titles from our DB, and I am using "< a href" to link it to the news ID.
I need to have different color of fonts on the alternating row.

Please guide me.
The following is my code.
<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="news_id"
            DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" Width="226px" BorderStyle="None" 
            BorderWidth="0px" CellPadding="2" Font-Size="10pt"  GridLines="Vertical" Height="146px" ShowHeader="False">
            <Columns>
                <asp:TemplateField InsertVisible="False">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <table>
                                    <div id="headlineNew">
                                            <a href='armorenews.aspx?id=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"news_id")%>'>
                                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "arnews_title")%>
                                            </a>
                                    </div>
                        </table>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                     <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" VerticalAlign="Middle" />
                  </asp:TemplateField>
            </Columns>
            <PagerSettings Visible="False" />
			<RowStyle BackColor="#F5F5F5" ForeColor="RED" />
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#ECECEC" ForeColor="GREEN"/>
        </asp:GridView>

I have tried using the DataNavigateUrlFormatString,
this does changes font color applied from the RowStyle and AlternationRowStyle

the Following is my code:



<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" 
		AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="news_id" 
                DataSourceID="News" Height="150px" Width="210px" 
		BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="0px" CellPadding="0" 
		Font-Size="9pt" GridLines="Vertical" ShowHeader="False" >
	<Columns>
		<asp:TemplateField InsertVisible="False" ShowHeader="False">
	                <ItemTemplate>
				<table>
		                       <div id="headlineNew">                  
			                    <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" 
							Font-Underline="false" 
							DataNavigateUrlFormatString='<%# "morenews.aspx?id=" + DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"news_id")%>'>
                                            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "news_title") %>
                                            </asp:HyperLink>                                                                
                                        </div>
                   	      </table>
                       	</ItemTemplate>
             	</asp:TemplateField>
	</Columns>        
	<PagerSettings Visible="False" />
	<RowStyle BackColor="WhiteSmoke" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#AD9147" />
    	<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#ECECEC" Font-Bold="false" ForeColor="black" />

Use <AlternatingItemTemplate></AlternatingItemTemplate> .
Put the same code as on ItemTemplate with only the color of the link different.
