     I am able to use the bindinglist() as a datasource for my winforms gridview. I set a timer to randomly update an item in my binding list and the changes are correctly reflecting on the grid. I am using the Onpropertychanged and iNotifyPropertyChanged events in my data class, so my grid is updating with the correct values when the underlying data changes.

I would like to make the cell momentarily change color when the data is changed in that cell. 

Is there a grid event that fires when the underlying data changes when using a bindinglist and the onpropertychanged notifiers?

I cannot seem to locate the correct grid event that fires when the data changes.

Hello Chuck,

You can use the RowsChanged event. The following example shows how you can set the BackColor with this event:
private void RadGridView1_RowsChanged(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCollectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Action == Telerik.WinControls.Data.NotifyCollectionChangedAction.ItemChanged)
    {
        var row = e.NewItems[0] as GridViewRowInfo;
        var cell = row.Cells[e.PropertyName];
        cell.Style.CustomizeFill = true;
        cell.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;
    }
}

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks!

I was trying to go one step further and get the old value vs the new value to determine if the cell gets a different color. Based on your code, I added to the code below, but was not able to get the old value. Am I using this correctly?

            if (e.Action == Telerik.WinControls.Data.NotifyCollectionChangedAction.ItemChanged)
            {
                var row = e.NewItems[0] as GridViewRowInfo;
                var cell = row.Cells[e.PropertyName];
                
                cell.Style.CustomizeFill = true;

                var oRow = e.OldItems[0] as GridViewRowInfo;
                var oCell = oRow.Cells[e.PropertyName];


                System.Diagnostics.Debug.Print(oCell.Value + " -> " + cell.Value);
                
                cell.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;
                System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(250);
                cell.Style.BackColor = Color.White;

            }
