I'm trying to set the background colour of the plus minus cell in a GridGroupingControl

I've tried the following but neither work:

m_ggc.BackColor = Color.Blue;
m_ggc.TableDescriptor.Appearance.RecordPlusMinusCell.BackColor = Color.Blue;

Any ideas why this should not work.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for posting query to us.

Please try the following code snippets and let me know if this helps.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Appearance.RecordPlusMinusCell.Themed = false;
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Appearance.RecordPlusMinusCell.BackColor = Color.Brown;

Hi Jisha

Sorry, but your suggestion did not make any difference. Even setting the background colour of the grid grouping control does not make a difference. Maybe the PlusMinus background is in fact part of the icon and so cannot be changed.

Hi Jisha

I've sorted it now. I was changing the RecordPlusMinusCell when I should have been changing the GroupCaptionPlusMinusCell.

Thanks for your help.
