Help with changing row colour on mouse move event using VB.NET

Ho do you change the backcolor and text forecolor of a row when you place the mouse over it?

I am using the DataGridView that comes with VS2010.

Thanks,

Victor

You can use the CellMouseEnter event to handle the mouse entering a cell in a row, and the CellMouseLeave event to handle the mouse leaving a cell in a row. The code would look like: (GridViewName should be replaced with the name of your DataGridView.)

    Private Sub GridViewName_CellMouseEnter(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles GridViewName.CellMouseEnter
        If e.ColumnIndex > 0 AndAlso e.RowIndex > 0 Then
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.DarkBlue
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.BlanchedAlmond
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.Font = _
                New Font(GridViewName.DefaultCellStyle.Font.FontFamily, _
                         GridViewName.DefaultCellStyle.Font.Size, FontStyle.Bold)
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub GridViewName_CellMouseLeave(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles GridViewName.CellMouseLeave
        If e.ColumnIndex > 0 AndAlso e.RowIndex > 0 Then
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.White
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Black
            GridViewName.Rows(e.RowIndex).DefaultCellStyle.Font = _
                New Font(GridViewName.DefaultCellStyle.Font.FontFamily, _
                         GridViewName.DefaultCellStyle.Font.Size, FontStyle.Regular)
        End If
    End Sub
