i am displaying rows into a DBG.and i placed a context menu strip control on it.
after displaying rows in a grid i am selecting a row and applying a color to that row by clicking on contextmenu strip button
but it is not applying that color

my code is
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

string con = "data source=SERVER;uid=sa;pwd=safertek;database=master";
string cmd = " select * from emp";
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd, con);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.Fill(ds, "emp");
gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];

this.gridDataBoundGrid1[1, 1].BackColor = Color.GreenYellow;
this.gridDataBoundGrid1[1, 1].TextColor = Color.RoyalBlue;
this.gridDataBoundGrid1[1, 1].CellType = "TextBox";


private void buttonAdv1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

private void openToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
int i = gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
int c = gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex;
this.gridDataBoundGrid1[i, c].BackColor = Color.GreenYellow;

Hi Hari,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You need to handle QueryCellInfo event to change the back color of the selected cell. Here is the code.

//To Change the backcolor of selected cell.
void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
if ((e.RowIndex == i && i!=-1)&& (e.ColIndex == c && c!=-1))
e.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;
i = -1;
c = -1;
if(e.RowIndex>0 && e.ColIndex>0)
e.Style.BackColor = Color.White;

int i = -1, c = -1;
private void openToolStripMenuItem_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
i = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
c = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex;

Please let me know if this helps.

Best Regards,
