    I'm formatting my RadGridView and changing its color based a cell value. It's working fine but if I scroll up or down It becomes to change all rows color.

    Is it a bug, or I'm doing something wrong?

    Here is my code:


    Thank you.

    Private Sub grid_RowFormatting(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.RowFormattingEventArgs)
        e.RowElement.RowInfo.MinHeight = 24
        If e.RowElement.RowInfo.Cells("Recusa").Value = "S" Then
          e.RowElement.ForeColor = Color.DarkRed
          e.RowElement.BackColor = Color.Coral
        End If
      End Sub

    Hello Rafael,

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    Cell elements of RadGridView are created only for currently visible cells and are being reused during operations like scrolling, filtering, grouping and so on. In order to prevent applying the formatting to other columns' cell elements (because of the cell reuse) all customizationс should be reset for the rest of the cell elements. Please refer to the code snippet below how to achieve it: 
    Private Sub RadGridView1_RowFormatting(sender As System.Object, e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.RowFormattingEventArgs) Handles RadGridView1.RowFormatting
        e.RowElement.RowInfo.MinHeight = 24
        If e.RowElement.RowInfo.Cells("TextBoxColumn").Value = "S" Then
            e.RowElement.DrawFill = True
            e.RowElement.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid
            e.RowElement.ForeColor = Color.DarkRed
            e.RowElement.BackColor = Color.Coral
            e.RowElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.ForeColorProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local)
            e.RowElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColorProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local)
            e.RowElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.DrawFillProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local)
            e.RowElement.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.GradientStyleProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local)
        End If
    End Sub
