I have a virtual grid. I am setting the HeaderBackColor to Custom color in PreviewViewStyleInfo.

protected override void OnPrepareViewStyleInfo(GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.RowIndex == 0)
e.Style.BackColor = this.HeaderBackColor;
e.Style.TextColor = this.HeaderForeColor;

//This doesn't change header settings
if (_styler != null)
_styler.SetInfo(e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex, e.Style);
if (e.RowIndex != 0 && _hilightAlternateRows && e.RowIndex % 2 == 0)
e.Style.BackColor = this.HilightAlternateRowColor;

//To highlight the whole row when the current cell is being displayed.
if (this.Model.Selections.Count > 0 && e.RowIndex > this.Model.Rows.HeaderCount && e.ColIndex > this.Model.Cols.HeaderCount && this.CurrentCell.HasCurrentCellAt(e.RowIndex))
e.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(SystemColors.Highlight);
e.Style.TextColor = SystemColors.HighlightText;
//e.Style.Font.Bold = true;

Only TextColor is having effect. The back color settings doen't have any effect. Kindly let me know how to set the header back color to the desired color. This color can be changed at runtime. Thanks.

Hi Kiran,

Try setting the Style.Themed to false to see if that takes care of the issue.

Best regards,
