I have a datagridview in which I change the font color after testing for certain criteria.  Here is the code snippet:

If dgvStatus = "Ho" Then
       e.CellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Red
End If

This changes the font color in the cell used in the selection criteria, but I want to change the font color in every cell in the row.  How can I do this?

Try this code:

e.Row.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red

The only thing that pops up with intellisense is RowIndex.

If I just type in your suggestion, I get this error:

"'Row' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Form.DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs'."

'*** Note:change datagridview1 to the name of your datagirdview.
       DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Red
End If
