I am alternating row colors in a GridControl by setting the style.Interior property in the PrepareViewStyleInfo event. However, when a in-cell textbox becomes active, the backcolor of the text box is the same as the row backcolor when I'd like it be SystemColor.Window, like all other textboxes normally are. How can I do this? Terry

You can try setting the backcolor in the CurrentCell in PrepareViewStyleInfo.
private void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
	if((e.RowIndex % 2) == 1)
		e.Style.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow;

	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
	if(cc.RowIndex == e.RowIndex && cc.ColIndex == e.ColIndex)
		e.Style.BackColor = Color.White;
