Cell background color change on row selection


I need your help.

I want some cells in grid to have different background color (to be somehow highlighted). So on queryCellInfo event, I change background color of particular cell with args.cell.bgColor = "#ffe0e0".
On row hoover event, background color of row changes, but those highlighted cells keep that color (#ffe0e0). [5th row on image]
But when row is selected, whole row background color changes, including those highlighted cells. [4th row on image] I would like to keep background color  of those cells in case of selection (as it is in the case of hoover). How can I achieve that?

Hi Petra,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.   
Query: “Cell background color change on row selection  
From your query, we understand that you are facing issue while selecting a record which is formatted using queryCellInfo event. We are able to reproduce the reported issue at our end while using bgColor attribute to html element (cell).   
Since bgColor is html attribute, it's got over ridded by the css styles applied while selecting a record.  And is it not supported in html5. So, we suggest you apply styles using css property.   
Refer the below code example  
Refer the below screenshot for the output  
Please get back to us if you have further queries.

Thanks for answer.
Unfortunately, the suggested solution does not work. I still get the same behaviour as before (when I was using html attribute).

Thanks for answer.
Your example works fine.
I managed to solve the problem by setting the background-image property...
