    Whats the best method to Alternate column colors? Which method/event to use? And how?

    Hello Svein,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can achieve the desired behavior by using the CellFormatting event of RadGridView. Here is an example:
    void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        e.CellElement.DrawFill = true;
        e.CellElement.NumberOfColors = 1;
        e.CellElement.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;
        if (e.ColumnIndex % 2 == 0)
            e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Green;
            e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Yellow;

    I hope that the provided information addresses your question. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
    the Telerik teamQ3’11 of RadControls for WinForms is available for download (see what's new). Get it today.
