Is there any way to set the grid so that it displays a single gradient background for the entire grid?
I've tried setting the Interior property of the TableStyle to a gradient brush, but that just applies the same gradient brush to each of the cells in the grid.
What I really want to do is set a gradient background such that the background starts with the first color in the first row and blends to the point where it displays the second color in the last row.

One thing you could try is to create a bitmap that has the gradient that you want to see, and then set this bitmap as the backgroundimage. Here are some code snippets.
int width = this.gridControl1.Bounds.Width;
int height = this.gridControl1.Bounds.Height;
Bitmap bm = new Bitmap(width, height);
Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bm);
LinearGradientBrush brush = new LinearGradientBrush(this.gridControl1.Bounds,
Color.FromArgb(255, 250, 200), Color.FromArgb(128, 20, 20), LinearGradientMode.BackwardDiagonal);
g.FillRectangle(brush, 0, 0, width, width);
this.BackgroundImage = bm;
gridControl1.SupportsTransparentBackColor = true;
gridControl1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(25, 204, 212, 230 );
gridControl1.TableStyle.Interior = new Syncfusion.Drawing.BrushInfo(Color.FromArgb(50, 204, 212, 230));
gridControl1.Properties.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(0, 204, 212, 230 );
One thing you would probably need to do is to resize (re-create) the bitmap whenever the grid is resized.
