I created the following style:

<Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewRow" BasedOn="{StaticResource {x:Type telerik:GridViewRow}}">
             
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightGray" />
 
            <Style.Triggers>
                <Trigger Property="IsSelected" Value="True">
                    <Setter Property="Background" Value="CornflowerBlue" />
                    <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="White"/>
                </Trigger>
 
                <Trigger Property="IsMouseOver" Value="True">
                    <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightBlue" />
                </Trigger>
            </Style.Triggers>
        </Style>

Everything works perfectly except this line:
<Setter Property="Background" Value="CornflowerBlue" />

So, how can I set the background color of a selected row?

Hello Leo,

If you want to modify the appearance of the selected row, you can predefine its template using Microsoft Expression Blend. There you should modify the Border element named Background_Selected in the way you need. I can suggest you to check this help article for a reference.

I hope this information helps.

Hello.

In my scenario, I don't want to change the default style or a default color of the selected row. But in certain conditions, I would like to change the selection color of the specific row.

For example from the SelectionChanged event handler of RadGridView, if a certain condition occurs, I would like to highlight the selected row (or rows) in a different color.

The problem is that there is no such property like:

myGrid.SelectedItem.Background = Brushes.Red  (and I want this to happen only for this specific time, and not always)

 

I hope you can help me,

Thanks in advance

Hello Alexander,

You can achieve your goal, by using a RowStyleSelector. Please check this help article for a reference. In your case, you can add a property of the business object (for example "IsActive") which will control when the row will switch its color. Then in the selection changed event, after some custom logic, you can set the IsActive property to True and the row should change its color.
