I've a GridDataBoundGrid with a datable for datasource.

I want to change the backColor and the borders of particulars cells.

I can access to this cells with
gridName(cell.RowIndex, cell.ColIndex)

but it's not working when I try to change the style of the cell.

I try to do this :
- in the sub new, after the affectation of the datasource
- in the sub form_Load
- in a sub who handles gridName.DrawCell
- in a sub who handles gridName.DrawCellBackground
- in a sub who handles gridName.DrawCurrentCellBorder

But nothing is working.

How must I do ?

Thank you for posting query to us.

You have to handle QueryCellInfo to apply cell specific styles in GridDataBoundGrid. You can check for the Colindex and RowIndex to track the specific cell and set the styles.

Please refer the code:

this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.QueryCellInfo += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(Model_QueryCellInfo);

//Event Handler

void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.ColIndex == 2 && e.RowIndex == 2)
e.Style.BackColor = Color.BlueViolet;
e.Style.Borders.All = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.DashDotDot, Color.DarkCyan);

Please let me know if this helps.
