Simple Datagrid Conditional Formatting

Posted on 2010-08-18

Hi all,

I have a SILVERLIGHT datagrid which is populated by a WCF data service and one of the fields within the table is a int value called STATUS, which has a value of 1,2,3 or 4

My question is how would I use conditional formatting so that once the datagrid is populated, each row has its background changed depending on the value of STATUS.

Any help would be much appreciated!

thanks

If it were WPF I'd use data triggers, but I hear that they're not there - at least in Siverlight 3.0

Here are a couple of lisks that discuss options:
