In my attached code the forecolor part is working fine...

However...I can't get the cell to show the date as "MM/dd/yyyy"

Tried everthing I can think of.
If TypeOf e.Item Is GridDataItem Then
            Dim item As GridDataItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)
            Format(Convert.ToDateTime(item.Cells(6).Text), "d")
            item.Cells(6).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.DarkRed
        End If

Hi,

Try this

item.Cells(6).Text = Convert.ToDateTime(item.Cells(6).Text).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")
