Starting in 2019, the Reporting control is no longer included in Essential Studio. If you're experiencing issues with the Syncfusion Reporting Platform, Report Viewer, Report Designer, or Report Writer, we recommend migrating to Bold Reports, our dedicated reporting platform.

Bold Reports offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features for all your reporting needs, and we will help you make a smooth transition from the discontinued control. Our support team at https://support.boldreports.com/ is here to assist you with any questions or difficulties you may encounter during the migration process.

We thank you for choosing Syncfusion and appreciate your understanding.

Toggle row color in Tablix


Attached, there is an image with two grids. The first grid (a Tablix) is the screenshot of my report.
I would like to toggle the color of the rows of the first grid as in the second grid.
How do I
accomplish this in ReportDesigner?

Hi Carlos, 
Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Components. 
You can set background color to alternate rows using “RowNumber” expression. You can select the required row and select background color in property grid then set the below expression for background color. 
=IIf(RowNumber(NOTHING) MOD 2, "","LIGHTGRAY") 
Also, we have prepared a sample report based on this and it can be downloaded from the below location. 
You can obtain the ReportDesigner component exe file in below build installed location,  
C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\ version\Utilities\Report Designer
