Dynamic Row background colour based on property from viewmodel


I'm trying to set my Row background colour dynamically using my viewmodel. As the viewmodel value changes I want the background colour to automatically change. For example if my model has a bool property called IsActive, I want to create a binding where true would result in purple while false would result in white. Any advice?

Hi Arvin,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support

In the SfDataGrid, it is possible to change the Row style at run time. You can change the Row style while changing the cell data by using  the SfDataGrid.CurrentCellEndEdit event along with the RowStyleSelector. We have prepared a sample as per your requirement and you can download the sample from the below location,

Please refer the below UG link to know more about RowStyleSelector

I have little bit different approach with using SetterValueBindingHelper:


        <Style x:Key="rowStyle" TargetType="sfDataGrid:VirtualizingCellsControl">
            <Setter Property="utils:SetterValueBindingHelper.PropertyBinding">
                    <utils:SetterValueBindingHelper Property="Background" Binding="{Binding Converter={StaticResource DataGridCellBackgroundConverter}}"/>

    public class DataGridCellBackgroundConverter : IValueConverter
        public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, string culture)
            if (value is Command)
                MyClass item = value as MyClass;
                return new SolidColorBrush(item.IsActive ? Colors.LightGreen : Colors.Gray);
            return new SolidColorBrush(Colors.White);
        public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, string culture)
            throw new NotImplementedException();
