Syncfusion 5.1
VS 2005

I'm trying to update the cell appearance of the summary section when the underlying record cell blinks, but having no luck with the attached code snippet in the
TableControlPrepareViewStyleInfo event.

Appreciate your response. Thanks

Hi Shek,

Please try these code and let me know if this helps.

GridTableCellIdentity id = null;
void gc_TableControlPrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridTableControlPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
GridTableCellStyleInfo style = (GridTableCellStyleInfo)e.Inner.Style;
BlinkState bs = this.Grid.GetBlinkState(style.TableCellIdentity);

if (bs != BlinkState.None)
if (bs == BlinkState.Increased || bs == BlinkState.Reduced)
// Blink works
style.BackColor = Color.Red;
style.TextColor = Color.White;
style.Font.Bold = true;
id = style.TableCellIndentity;
// The next 2 lines of code have no effect
// GridSummarySection summarySection = (GridSummarySection)style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.ParentGroup.Summary;
// summarySection.Appearance.AnyCell.BackColor = Color.Red;
if (el.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Summary)

if ( e.TableControl.GroupingControl.GetBlinkState(id) != BlinkState.None)
e.Inner.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;

Best regards,
