    Hi everyone,

    I used the CellFormatting event to Format all cell's Background and border.

    So, when i click on a cell, I don't see the selected row/cell.


    Is there any way to set an higher priority to the selected cell/row than the cell formatting ?


    Thanks in advance.


    Best regards,

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for writing.

    Local settings introduced to properties in the CellFormatting event have higher priority than the theme settings for the highlighting. What I would suggest is to also style the selection color in the CellFormatting event:
    private void RadGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        e.CellElement.DrawFill = true;
        e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Red;
        if (e.Row.IsSelected)
            e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Yellow;

    I hope this helps.
