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");
}

(in the above code Double should be double)

If it is sometimes valid and sometimes not, change it like this:

double cellValue;
double.TryParse(e.Rows.Cells[1].Text, out cellValue);
// cellValue will contain 0.0 if it is not convertible
if ((e.Row.Cells[1].Text != "Text on header row") && (cellValue < 0.65))
{
    e.Row.Cells[1].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#000FF");
}

Hello ,

I attached code in code snippet. Mailny you have to handle GridView RowDataBound Event .

No need to check headertext and just need to check rowtype.

This is a main part.

    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            float cellvalue ;
            bool b = float.TryParse(e.Row.Cells[1].Text,out cellvalue);
            if (b)
            {
                if (cellvalue < 0.65f)
                {
                    e.Row.Cells[1].BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#000FF");
                }
            }
        }
    }
