Hi Haneef ... How can i change the back color of any particular cell in Data Bound Grid ...
I have tried using the following code but it's not working.

gridDataBound1[1,1].BackColor = Color.Red;
gridDataBound1.Model[1,1].BackColor = Color.Red;

Hi Ubaid,

By default, DataBoundGrid doesn't store any style info properties. You can not set any cell or row specific properties for the DataBoundGrid other than the CellValue. You need to handle the PrepareViewStyleInfo (or Model.QueryCellInfo) Event to do this. Through this event you can set the style properties for the grid.

To set the BackColor for a cell, you check for the e.RowIndex/e.ColIndex, if that points to the row you desired, set the e.Style.BackColor for it.

See the KnowledgeBase Articles for more info.
QueryCellInfo event : http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10351
PrepareViewStyleInfo event :http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=560

Please let me know if this helps.
