i have some trouble with RadGrid styling. I picked up a skin (Windows7 to be exact) and I tried to customize the look'n'feel of it - basically i wanted to disable the AlternateItemStyling so the whole grid would have a white background and i'd like to keep the 'selected' item styling. I set EnableAlternatingItems to false and to my astonishment my whole grid got a gray-blue like (#d7e8fe) background. Ok. So i started to browse the forums and the documentation, found something but it didn't work out for me.
Cutting the story short - when i set the ItemStyle, AlternatingItemStyle (to Transparent) and SelectedItemStyle(to #d7e8fe) BackColor properties almost everything looks like i want to.. but. Despite i set GridLines to None they still get rendered but that's a minor issue. The major is, when i select an item and then deselect it, RadGrid changes the background color of it back to the gray-blue like ignoring all of my settings. I tried everything, overriding the css styles with the !important switch, setting the colors declaratively, none of it worked as expected.
