Hi together,

I am using the GridConditionalFormatDescriptor to specify some backcolor of my cell according to a special condition. Now I wanna know if this is also possible for GroupingCaption cells.

So for example I have a table which is grouped by a column called ''Type''. Assuming that I have two rows in that table - for the column ''Type'' the values ''Name'' and ''Street''.

So i get two groups ''Name'' and ''Street''. Now I want to color the GroupCaption for ''Name'' red and the GroupCaption for ''Street'' green. Can this be done via the GridConditionalFormatDescriptor?

You need to handle the QueryCellStyleInfo event to do this. Below is the code snippet.

if (e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.GroupCaptionCell)
Group group = e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.ParentGroup;
if (group.Category != null && group.Name == "Street")
e.Style.BackColor = Color.Green;
if (group.Category != null && group.Name == "Name")
e.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;
