How do you format the whole grid so that it looks like Microsoft''s flat style? e.g. borders, cells in grid, etc Thanks.

On an XP system with grid.ThemesEnabled = true, you get a ''flat'' XP look. But if this is not what you want, you will have to set particular properties to flatten different parts of teh grid. Here is a try at this. //set grid borderstyle this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle; //make headers be static cells to avoid raised drawing this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Header"].StyleInfo.CellType = "Static"; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.CellType = "Static"; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Row Header"].StyleInfo.CellType = "Static"; //set the header borders to draw GridStyleInfo style = new GridStyleInfo(); GridBorder gb = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.Solid, SystemColors.ControlDark); style.Borders.Bottom = gb; style.Borders.Right = gb; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Header"].StyleInfo.ModifyStyle(style, Syncfusion.Styles.StyleModifyType.Override); this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.ModifyStyle(style, Syncfusion.Styles.StyleModifyType.Override); this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Row Header"].StyleInfo.ModifyStyle(style, Syncfusion.Styles.StyleModifyType.Override); //set the borders for all non header cells... this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.Options.DefaultGridBorderStyle = GridBorderStyle.Solid;
