I have a GGC with a GidGroupDropArea feature turn on. I change the backcolor of the area in the GridGroupDropArea_PrepareViewStyleInfo and it works. However, as my grid gets more columns, at a certain point, the backcolor of the drop area changes. Please refer to the attachment. How can I make sure that the entire drop area stays the color that I want?

Many thanks!

Hi Patrick,

The droparea is a little grid. So, you can handle its PrepareViewStyleInfo event, and explicitly set a backcolor there.

this.gridGroupingControl1.GridGroupDropArea.PrepareViewStyleInfo += new GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventHandler(GridGroupDropArea_PrepareViewStyleInfo);

private void GridGroupDropArea_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
//For color the GroupedColumns then uncommet the below code:
//e.Style.Themed = false;
e.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;

And also you can try setting these two properties to fill the ClientArea of the GridGroupDropArea with Red Color.

this.gridGroupingControl1.GridGroupDropArea.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
this.gridGroupingControl1.GridGroupDropArea.Model.Properties.BackgroundColor = Color.Red;

Please refer to the modified sample for implementation and let me know if this helps.

Best regards,
