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;
    }
    else
    {
        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.
 
Regards,
Stefan
