    I have been experimenting with setting the Background property of the GridViewDataColumn. If I set it to a color, it works as expected. However, if I set it to "Transparent", I would expect that the background color of the Grid would show, but instead it is White. Is this by design?

    I can work around this by setting the column's background color, but would prefer to set it to "Transparent", as that makes it easier to change later.

    Hello Helen,

    Indeed this is by design of the grid. Setting a column to transparent (in fact it is transparent by default) will show the background of the rows. Setting their background to transparent will reveal the background of the grid (gray-ish color by default).
