Wpf Datagrid Row Colors

As I  am  going to  develop  a  new  project  by  extending  capabilities  of  previous  project which was  developed  in WPF,VC#. My  new  project  is  going  to  communicate  with  two  different  biomedical  instruments. From  instrument  I  will  read  results  and  save into database. From database  by  processing  results  I  will show  it  in different  formats  on  various forms as  per  domain  requirement. While  saving  results  in database  I  will  store  it   with  instrument  id.
Now  while  showing on  datagrid  I  have  to  display  results  in different  ForeColor  and  different  backcolor  of rows for two  different  instrument.I  have  searched  in  google   and I  have  just  known  that  coloring  rows  is possible  in  WPF. Now  Please  by  understanding  my  problem,can  any one  tell  me  syntax  or  tips. I  am  right  now  in  design  phase  for  my  project. So  tips  from  experts  will be  helpful  at  this  time. I  want  to  have  good  graphs  for  displaying  on  WPF,Is  there  any  good  cheap  resource  available  in  market? Please  suggest

You can set the AlternatingCount to 2, and then add a row style like this:

<DataGrid.RowStyle>
            <Style TargetType="{x:Type DataGridRow}">
                <Style.Triggers>
                    <Trigger Property="AlternationIndex" Value="0">
                        <Setter Property="Background" Value="White" />
                    </Trigger>
                    <Trigger Property="AlternationIndex" Value="1">
                        <Setter Property="Background" Value="SkyBlue" />
                    </Trigger>
                    <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=Selectable}" Value="False">
                        <DataTrigger.Setters>
                            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Gainsboro" />
                        </DataTrigger.Setters>
                    </DataTrigger>
                </Style.Triggers>
            </Style>
        </DataGrid.RowStyle>

There are several different ways to achieve that

1 - Use DataTrigger inside a DataTemplate to alter color, e.g. (especially useful when you already have a DataTemplate)

<DataTemplate.Triggers>
<DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=ItemType}" Value="Something">
<Setter Property="ListBoxItem.Foreground" Value="Red"></Setter>
</DataTrigger>
</DataTemplate.Triggers>

Open in new window


In your case, you may have to write a value converter to return the type of the Item (say its className) and use that as trigger value.

2 - DataTrigger can also be used inside a Style (as already shown).

3 - Use a StyleSelector that lets you change the entire Style of an item, without having to write a template

4 - Use different DataTemplates either declaratively or using TemplateSelector.
