is it possible to change the background colour of a row in the grid based on the value of one of the fields?

For example if a Boolean field called Enabled = true then use the default background of White and if is false then use a an alternate background of grey.

Hi James, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We have achieved your requirement using rowDataBound event in Grid. In this event, we can get the every row data details in “args.data” parameter. So, we can change the row background color in using this event as well as based on that corresponding value. Please refer to the following code example and Help documentation for more information, 

Code example: 
<ej-grid id="FlatGrid" datasource="@ViewBag.data" allow-sorting="true" allow-paging="true" row-data-bound="rowDataBound" > 
    . . . 
            <e-column field="OrderID" is-primary-key="true" header-text="Order ID" text-align="Right"></e-column> 
            <e-column field="CustomerID" header-text="Customer ID" edit-type="String"></e-column> 
            <e-column field="EmployeeID" header-text="EmployeeID " edit-type="Dropdown"></e-column> 

[row data bound event] 
function rowDataBound(e) { 
        if (e.data.CustomerID == "VINET") 
            e.row.css("background-color", 'red');//change the row background color based on customerID value
