Alternating colors in a GridListControl

How can you alternate the colors of the rows in with the GridListControl. With the .net controls there is a DrawItem property that allows you to write code to accomplish this task. Is there something similar in syncfusion. Thanks in advance. Bill

You can use the PrepareViewStyleInfo event of the embedded GridControl to handle this. //hook the event GridControl grid = gridListControl1.Grid; grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo += new GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventHandler(grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo);
//the event handler
private void grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
{
	if( e.RowIndex > 0)
	{
		if(e.RowIndex % 2 == 1)
		{
			e.Style.BackColor = Color.Blue;
		}
		else
		{
			e.Style.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue;
		}
	}
}

Clay do you have the code in VB.net? I am not familiar with C#. Thanks, Bill

Here it is. ' in form load 'hook the event Dim grid As GridControl = gridListControl1.Grid AddHandler grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo, AddressOf grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo
' the handler
'the event handler
Private Sub grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo(sender As Object, e As GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs)
    If e.RowIndex > 0 Then
        If e.RowIndex Mod 2 = 1 Then
            e.Style.BackColor = Color.Blue
        Else
            e.Style.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue
        End If
    End If
End Sub 'grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo

Clay, I get an bad Name error when I Dim grid As GridControl = gridListControl1.Grid. It does not like the GridControl namespace. Any suggestions. I am new to VB.Net so any info would be helpful. Bill

Try adding Imports Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid as the first line in your file (outside the class definition).
