Is it possible to change color in MultiColumnComboBox rows or cells? Like row or cell backcolor, text color, header backcolor or text color?
I can't find any threads about this...

Hi Dinis,

Thanks for using syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your reported requirement "Is it possible to change the row color in MultiColumnComboBox?" and you can achieve by using PrepareViewStyleInfo event.

Please refer the below code snippet and screenshot for your reference.

GridControl grid = this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid; 
grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo += Gc_PrepareViewStyleInfo; 
private void Gc_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e) 
    if (e.RowIndex == 0) 
        e.Style.BackColor = Color.Black; 
        e.Style.TextColor = Color.White;
