You can use GridConditionalFormatDescriptor to do this. Below is a sample link. //color rows and alternates rows if their Age value is between 30 and 40. GridConditionalFormatDescriptor format = new GridConditionalFormatDescriptor("specialColor"); format.Expression = "[Age] > 30 And [Age] < 40"; format.Appearance.AlternateRecordFieldCell.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow; format.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.BackColor = Color.LightBlue; this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.ConditionalFormats.Add(format); GroupingDataSample_3560.zip

Thanks, that''s great! i have a problem with a boolean field, or bit in sql. format.Expression = "[Completed] = False"; format.Expression = "[Completed] = 0"; or just format.Expression = "[Completed]"; none seem to work. i tried an integer field and it works. tia

having trouble with string fields too, such as format.Expression = "[Full/Empty] = ''E''";

You use LIKE to work with strings (and bool values). You can also use match. The strings have to be in single quotes. ''OK is a checkbox column format.Expression = "[OK] LIKE ''true''" ''states that start with N format.Expression = "[State] LIKE ''N*''" ''only NC format.Expression = "[State] LIKE ''NC''"

Around the literals should be only one single quote on each side. I think the web interface has added the additional one you see.

What would the Format.Expression look like if the underlying data type is a SqlDateTime? For example I want to change the background colour of all rows with a CreatedAt date < ''2004-12-01''. The cell data looks like ''2004-12-07 12:34 PM'' etc. This doesn''t work for me: format.Expression = "[CreatedAt] < 2004-12-01"; What should I be using in this scenario?

You would need to use the ''between'' operator to compare dates. Here is the section from the User Guide on between. between - Checks if a date field value between the two values is listed in the right-hand operand. For example, [date] between {2/25/2004, 3/2/2004} returns 1 for any record whose date field is greater or equal 2/25/2004 and less than 3/2/2004. To represent the current date, use the token TODAY. To represent DateTime.MinValue, leave the first argument empty. To represent DateTime.MaxValue, leave the second argument empty. GridConditionalFormatDescriptor format = new GridConditionalFormatDescriptor("Before Dec"); format.Expression = "[CreateDate] between {,2004-12-01}"; format.Appearance.AlternateRecordFieldCell.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow; format.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow; this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.ConditionalFormats.Add(format);
