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" />

</asp:GridView>

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