How to add conditional formatting to rows?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl
Tags: formatting, row

In order to color a row if the value in column 2 is larger than 10 (or any logical condition that you can evaluate), the PrepareViewStyleInfo event can be used.

Code Snippet


this.gridControl1.Model.Options.RefreshCurrentCellBehavior = GridRefreshCurrentCellBehavior.RefreshRow;
this.gridControl1.PrepareViewStyleInfo += gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo;
void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
    if (e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0)
        double d;
        string val = (e.ColIndex == 2) ? e.Style.Text : this.gridControl1[e.RowIndex, 2].Text;
        if (double.TryParse(val, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Any, null, out d)
            && d > 10)
             e.Style.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow;



Me.gridControl1.Model.Options.RefreshCurrentCellBehavior = GridRefreshCurrentCellBehavior.RefreshRow
AddHandler Me.gridControl1.PrepareViewStyleInfo, AddressOf gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo
void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(Object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
   If e.RowIndex > 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex > 0 Then
   Dim d As Double
   Dim val As String = If((e.ColIndex = 2), e.Style.Text, Me.gridControl1(e.RowIndex, 2).Text)
   If Double.TryParse(val, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Any, Nothing, d) AndAlso d > 10 Then
   e.Style.BackColor = Color.LightGoldenrodYellow
   End If
   End If
