Custom row maniupulation/generation

I got a problem for wich I''m sure you guys at SyncFusion already tought of, but I have no idea what or where to search. I''d like to use a databound grid for wich I want to change rows colors (or anything really) according to a value contained in the datasource. Where should I start hacking? Paint? Or should I use a not databound grid and fill it manually?

Checkout this KB. http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/grid/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=84 It colors row 8, but instead you could check the test value on the row to decide to color things or not.

If I understand correctly, I could color a precise cell/row/col at this moment, but I need something slightly more fancy. I need to choose the color according to a value in the corresponding DataRow/View, but the currency manager doesn''t seem to be synchronized. Still I could access the cell containing the color wich I wanna use, but obviously, this is a no-no since I don''t want to show this column to the user. Any ideas?

To get the DataRowView object in PrepareViewStyleInfo, you would get the CurrencyManager (or have a saved reference to the CurrencyManager) and look up the DataRowView through the CurrencyManager.List. Here is code you can use in PrepareViewStyleInfo to retrieve teh proper DataRowView assuming you have previously save a reference to the CurrencyManager in this.cm. int pos = this.grid.Binder.RowIndexToPosition(e.RowIndex); DataRowView drv = this.cm.List[pos] as DataRowView;
