    I have a GridView with MultiSelect enabled. The standard behavior is when the user selects a row this changes the row's color and all selected rows maintain a diferent color. I want to mimic this behavior with a GridViewCheckBoxColumn.

     My GridView has a GridViewCheckBoxColumn and when it's checked, I want to change the row color. If it's unchecked, return it back to normal. Currently I'm using the ValueChanged event to capture the event of the checking and unchecking.

    private void radGridViewProducts_ValueChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (this.radGridViewProducts.ActiveEditor is RadCheckBoxEditor)
            this.radGridViewProducts.Rows[this.radGridViewProducts.CurrentCell.RowIndex].IsSelected = true;

     The code above does not change the row color. How can I acheive this?


    Thank you.

    My uneducated guess:

    ​As with most of the formatting: Use the CellFormatting event, check the e.CellElement.RowInfo for the state of your GridViewCheckBoxColumn and format accordingly.


    As a little kickstart check


    One of the telerik folks will certainly provide more detailed feedback soon.

    Hi Rodrigo,

    Thank you for writing.

    An example for this is available in the following article: Formatting Rows

    In addition, you should set the EditMode property of the checkbox column. This way the change will be applied immediately:
    GridViewCheckBoxColumn col = radGridView1.Columns[0] as GridViewCheckBoxColumn;
    col.EditMode = EditMode.OnValueChange;

    I hope this helps.
