Probably. Can you provide a bit more info about how you are populating your grid, the data source, whether you are grouping within the grid, or at the datasource, etc?

You can use the RowDataBound event for formatting your gridview.

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
  // Check if row is data row, not header, footer etc.
  if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
  {
//access your boundfield or templatefield values
  }
}

Hi,

I have a grid view which is populated like this:

25102      Attr1      Dec 23 2012 3:48PM
25102      Attr1      Jul 5 2012 11:45AM
10009      Attr2      Jan 6 2014 1:19PM
10009      Attr2      Dec 24 2013 8:10AM
10009      Attr2      Dec 23 2013 3:48PM
11759      Attr3      Jul 5 2012 11:45AM


What I’d like to do is to apply some conditional formatting to it so that it highlights the latest value where column 1 & 2 are the same:  Thus in the case above it would look like this:

25102      Attr1      Dec 23 2012 3:48PM      Highlight Row
25102      Attr1      Jul 5 2012 11:45AM      
10009      Attr2      Jan 6 2014 1:19PM      Highlight Row
10009      Attr2      Dec 24 2013 8:10AM      
10009      Attr2      Dec 23 2013 3:48PM      
11759      Attr3      Jul 5 2012 11:45AM      Highlight Row


Can’t figure out what the logic should be?
