Conditional Formatting on Rows

Hi there,
When using a PivotGrid in Sync Fusion report designer, is it possible to change the colour of a row based on the contents of a field in that row?

For example I have columns a grid of: 

Case #      Date             Priority      Customer, 
1               30/04/2011   High          Bob
2               25/02/0012   Low          Dave  

could I change the colour of the row red when the Priority is High? Many thanks

Hi Matt, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion components. 

Currently, we don’t have an option to change the background color of the row based on the field value in Pivot Grid, so we suggest you to use the Tablix control to achieve your requirement. You need to set the below expression for the background property of each cell in that row for your requirement. 

=IIf(Fields!Priority.Value = "High", "Red", "Transparent") 
We have prepared a simple report based on this and it can be downloaded from the below location.

Many thanks Vinoth,

I have attempted to alter the expression to exactly what I need and unfortunately this hasn't work.  I should note that I am using the Web Designer, so the only options I have for the table are the Grid and PivotGrid.

I have attached screenshots of what I have attempted.

Hi Matt, 

Thanks for your update. 

Could you please update us the Report Server version you are using at your end, since we have provided Tablix report item support in release version.
