I want to have alternating colors for DataBoundGrid, I don't see any property. Is there a way?

Hi Dheeraj,

You can handle the PrepareViewStyleInfo event and set the backcolor for the alternate rows in a grid. Here is a code snippet to show this.

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if( e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0 )
if( e.RowIndex % 2 == 0)
e.Style.BackColor = Color.Gray;
e.Style.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue ;

Best Regards,
