When i choose transparent color from a color edit the framework throws an exception saying that this color is not supported by the control. To solve this i set this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, true); But even then i get a error...How do i fix this

The GridControl has a public property that allows this, this.gridControl1.SupportsTransparentBackColor = true; The GridDataBoundGrid does not. But as indicated, you can derive the GridDataBoundGrid and set a style property in the constructor to enable this. public class MyGridDataBoundGrid : GridDataBoundGrid { public MyGridDataBoundGrid() : base() { this.SetStyle(ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, true); } } But if you are trying to use TransparentBackColor in an editing cell control, this is not supported as this control is based on a RichTextBox that does not support transparency.
