    This seems like a bug, but hopefully someone has run into this before.  I am setting the background color of individual cells based on the data in the underlying object to which the cell is bound.  I'm doing this in the RowLoaded event in the code-behind rather than in XAML.  My code looks like this:

             if ((e.Row is GridViewHeaderRow) || (e.Row is GridViewFooterRow) || (e.Row is GridViewNewRow))  
                    return//we want to apply logic to data rows only  
                foreach (var cell in e.Row.Cells)  
                    switch (cell.Column.GetValue(NameProperty).ToString())  
                        case "dcPlanName":  
                            cell.SetBinding(GridViewCell.BackgroundProperty, new Binding("IsNextPlanNameReadOnly") { Converter = new IsTotalRowToColorConverter() });  
                        case "dcLotType":  
                            cell.SetBinding(GridViewCell.BackgroundProperty, new Binding("IsNextLotTypeReadOnly") { Converter = new IsTotalRowToColorConverter() });  
                        case "dcBldgType":  
                            cell.SetBinding(GridViewCell.BackgroundProperty, new Binding("IsNextBuildingReadOnly") { Converter = new IsTotalRowToColorConverter() });  
                        //many more cells...  

    This works great until I scroll the grid to the right.  There are 30+ columns in the grid so there's a lot of real estate to cover.  Once I scroll to the right and back to the left it starts losing the background colors and they return to the default.  Any simple way around this or do I have to create a custom Style for the cell?  If I have to go the Style route, can someone post the default cell style for the grid.  I seem to remember there's no way to get at it from Blend.

    Hello Dan Kinchen,

    The reason for the loss of the background style of the columns is most probably due to the Virtualization of the Columns, which leads to the re-usage of some of them. 
    A possible and easy way to correct that is to stop the virtualization in the declaration of the RadGridView:

    this.RadGridView1.EnableColumnVirtualization = false;

    However, if you have a lot of data, it will lead to slow performance of your Grid.
    In order to achieve your purpose you may use StyleSelectors. You can find more information in this blog post.
    A good approach in you case may be to use Conditional Formating. I am sending you a sample project where the cells in the second column are coloured depending on their value.

    I hope that helps.
