2 buttons, 1 datagridview.
using visual basic .net on visual studio 2008. this datagrid view is a native control.

the grid shows the schedule of a specific doctor for every turn (20minute invervals)
besides other funcionalities, if a certain field is selected (say, dr Cucho Gamba at 8.20), 1 button must change the background to green and the other button must change it to red.

Other functionalities include changing the state of that field (if its only reserved or if its been payed for) but that has already been handled.

Any assistance is greaty appreciated, let me know if more info is needed.

Hi,

To change the backcolor of the selected cell (the one that user click on)  you have to use the style of the current cell like this (assuming that your datagridview name is datagridview1)

'Green Color
DataGridView1.CurrentCell.Style.BackColor = Color.LightGreen

'Red Color
DataGridView1.CurrentCell.Style.BackColor = Color.Red
