Hello I have a question, would someone be able to explain to me how to apply alternate row colors to a details view when in edit mode?

I am not finding information about this, maybe because using wrong keywords for search.

Any help would be nice, if examples provided even better!

Thank you much!

You would use nth child https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/:nth-child#Example_selectors and you can simply use nth-child(odd)

table#MyTable{
  tr:nth-child(odd)
}

That is your external style sheet.   Your rendered code would look like http://jsbin.com/EtIQUWeQ/1/edit

I am not a .net dev but I think your table would be

<asp:Table id="MyTable"  runat="server" />

The external css would create the formatting.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
 <style>
   table#MyTable
   tr:nth-child(odd){background-color:red;
}
  </style>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
</head>
<body>
  <table id="MyTable">
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    
  </table>
</body>
</html>

When you go to edit mode, add a class.  http://jsbin.com/EtIQUWeQ/2/edit

Here is the same thing but applying to a class called "edit".  When it the table is not in edit mode:    <table id="MyTable"> and when in edit mode  <table id="MyTable" class="edit">  You may need to do this with js/jquery or if you are doing a page refresh to get to edit mode, then add the class via your serverside code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
 <style>
   table#MyTable.edit
   tr:nth-child(odd){background-color:red;
}
  </style>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
</head>
<body>
  <table id="MyTable" class="edit">
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
    
  </table>
</body>
</html>
