How to apply different Background color to the groupcaption?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejGrid

We can update the different colors for each group caption using the captionFormat of the Grid groupSettings and helper functions of the jsRender.




Render the Grid with the groupedColumns and captionFormat.












<ej:Grid ID="Grid" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowGrouping="true">

    <PageSettings PageSize="8" />

    <GroupSettings CaptionFormat="#caption" GroupedColumns="CustomerID" />


        <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID"></ej:Column>

        <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID"></ej:Column>

        <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="Employee ID"></ej:Column>

        <ej:Column Field="Frieght" HeaderText="Freight" Format="{0:C}"></ej:Column>






Define captionFormat template and styles that needed for the Grid.



Define the helper functions that need to generate the color and update them to the styles of the caption format template.
