AS you can see from the image the colored lines are all out of sorts. How can these be altered?

I just want the lines within the groups to alternate colors and not the group headings

Are you really sure about that- it will look quite odd.

well, i figured out by changing the header backcolor it makes it look alot better to me.

BUT why arent all the headings changing colors? you see cotton picker and grain head took the new backcolor but front loader did not
