I am trying to build a for loop that will go to each row in my gridview and check wheter a row has any of the following criterias, but I am not quite sure how to build the loop since right now I specify the column , please help
protected void GridView3_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {

        for (Int32 i = 0; i < GridView3.Columns.Count; i++)

        { 

        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            DataRowView row = e.Row.DataItem as DataRowView;


         
            if (row["NT1_Status"].ToString() == "Assigned")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;
            }

            else if (row["NT1_Status"].ToString() == "BR")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Azure;
            
            }

            else if (row["NT1_Status"].ToString() == "OpenNS")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightSalmon;

            }
            }
        }
    }

Ok, this event occurs for every row in your grid, thus no need for loop.
I rewrite your code, notice the way i fetch the value:
string statusValue = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "NT1_Status");

You need to fech any required value that way and cast it to your needs.

Cheers,
Miguel

                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;

I was having a similar problem and I used the following logic in the page load event instead of the row binding to get around it.

DataTable dt = (DataTable)gridView.DataSource;
int rowIndex = 0;
foreach (GridViewRow gvr in gridView.Rows)
{
gvr.DataItem = dt.Rows[rowIndex++];
DataRow dr = (DataRow)gvr.DataItem;                
object[] oa = dr.ItemArray;
if (oa[7].ToString().Length == 0)
{
gvr.Cells[7].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
}
}

I dont reallly see the logc there,

the function should look for all cells in the grid, but instead of saying
 string statusValue = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "NT1_Status");

where  "NT1_Status"  is the status field , i want to look for all cells and when the Status field of each column is for example

if (statusValue == "Assigned")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;
}

but NT1_Staus is just one of many databound fields which are called e.g. NT2_Status.,,,

sorrry my english is very bas hope i get the idead.

GridView3_RowDataBound occurs every time a row is bound to data in a GridView control.
Check:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.rowdatabound.aspx

If you want to look at all the the other values, just repeat the same construct:
string status2Value = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "NT2_Status");
//do similar code here
etc.
Note: For the column loop, you can even use the column name, instead of hard -coded names ("NT2_Status")

Question: Are you planning to change every cell or just cell[0] based on the contents.

I am not very familiar with GridView, but

I have a filed on the database for each column status , so the grid looks like


NT1                                        NT2                 NT3
43 Assigned                           65 BR
34                                           11 Assigned
22   BR
11

So on this case 43 and 11 cells  should change color

if (statusValue == "Assigned")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;
            }

Ok, your issue is that, we need to compare strings, because "Assigned" is part of the string not the string itself.
Thus my previous posted code can be modified to work with your sample data as follows:
[Snippet ID=8036243]
Note: Debug.WriteLine is optional but it will show that you are fetching the correct column names.
protected void GridView3_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < GridView1.Columns.Count; i++)
            {
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(GridView1.Columns[i].HeaderText))
                    continue;
                Debug.WriteLine(String.Format("Col {0}Header text {1}", i, GridView1.Columns[i].HeaderText), "GridView3_RowDataBound");
                string statusValue = (string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, GridView1.Columns[i].HeaderText);

                if (statusValue.Contains("Assigned"))
                {
                    e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGreen;
                }

                else if (statusValue.Contains("BR"))
                {
                    e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Azure;

                }

                else if (statusValue.Contains("OpenNS"))
                {
                    e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightSalmon;

                }
            }
        }
    }
