I am using an asp:GridView to display data from SQL Server.  I would like to change the color of a cell by comparing a float to the value of the cell (TableCell).  I am using c#.  Below is a snippet that shows what I am attempting to accomplish.  Thank you in advance.
if ((e.Row.Cells[1].Text != "Text on header row") && (e.Rows.Cells[1] < 0.65))
            {
                e.Row.Cells[1].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#000FF");
            }

If the cell is certain to have a double/float value, you can use:


if ((e.Row.Cells[1].Text != "Text on header row") && (Double.Parse(e.Rows.Cells[1].Text) < 0.65))
{
    e.Row.Cells[1].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#000FF");
}
