    I have a RadGridView that is using the group by functionality.

     When grouping by a column, the group by rows are created.

    I would like to change the font, background color, etc. of the group by row, but cannot figure out how. (They don't seem to take any formatting from the rows before the group by)


    Thank you.

    Hello Nathan,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can use the ViewCellFormatting event to style the cells in the group row. For example:
    Font myFont = new Font("Segoe Script", 10, FontStyle.Regular);
    void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        if (e.CellElement is GridGroupContentCellElement)
            e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Red;
            e.CellElement.Font = myFont;
            e.CellElement.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;
            e.CellElement.DrawFill = true;
            e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColorProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local);
            e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.GradientStyleProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local);
            e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.FontProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local);
            e.CellElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.DrawFillProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local);
