You set the styles at runtime or at design time:

With Me.DataGridView1
    .RowsDefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.White
    .AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Gainsboro
End With

Open in new window

In the properties window of the DataGridView you should also see the property for AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.

Edit it there.
