How to customize the Foreground color for cells in a column based on the cell content from Code behind?

Platform: Xamarin.Forms |
Control: SfDataGrid
Tags: styling

You can achieve your requirement by setting Style to GridColumn.CellStyle as in the below code example

public SfDataGridPage()
    Style style = new Style(typeof(GridCell));
    style.Setters.Add(new Setter() { Property = GridCell.ForegroundProperty, Value = new Binding("Freight", BindingMode.TwoWay, new StyleConverter()) });
    dataGrid.Columns[2].CellStyle = style;


Refer the below code example for writing a converter to customize the cell foreground based on conditions.

public class StyleConverter : IValueConverter
    public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
        double _value = (double)value;
        if (_value >= 500)
            return Color.Green;
        return Color.Red;
    public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture)
        return value;
