Good Afternoon,

I am looking for a way to expand on my Find feature that I am using. Right now I am searching a data sequence for example "1001" across multiple rows in a grid. When I find the "4" cells that contain this data I would like to either change the background color or more preferably apply a border to show these are the cells that the search found. Is there a way to do this in Syncfusion?

Thank you,

Hi Bryan,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

From the reported query it seems that the intention is to highlight records based on filter criteria.

To Highlight Records:

To highlight records you can make use of the PrepareViewStyleInfo event / QueryCellStyleInfo event.


I have attached  a sample of how to highlight the current record(Using PrepareViewStyleInfo event). Please use the selection mode tab in the application and choose the available radiobutton mode as such as how you want to highlight the selected grid cells record.

//PepareViewStyleInfo event…..

Tweak the customizsation code to get the selected rows..

// Highlight the current row with SystemColors.Highlight and bold font

if (e.RowIndex > grid.Model.Rows.HeaderCount && e.ColIndex > grid.Model.Cols.HeaderCount

&& cc.HasCurrentCellAt(e.RowIndex))


e.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(SystemColors.Highlight);

e.Style.TextColor = SystemColors.HighlightText;

e.Style.Font.Bold = true;


Please let me know if you have any concerns.
