If I have a data grid and not enough records to fill it then I get a white background shows where there are no rows.  I cannot find a way of changing this.  I have attached an image.  My data grid is red but I end up with a white area at the bottom.  I want to be make this area, where are now rows, red as well please.  Many thanks.

radGridView1.TableElement.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
radGridView1.TableElement.BackColor2 = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
radGridView1.TableElement.BackColor3 = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
radGridView1.TableElement.BackColor4 = System.Drawing.Color.Red;

Hi guys,

Thank you for writing.

Indeed, setting the BackColor of the TableElement is the right way to introduce the desired color setting. Since by default the GradientStyle is set for Linear, you would need to set the 4 back colors as Mahmoud suggested. Or, alternatively, you can set the GradientStyle to Solid:
radGridView1.TableElement.GradientStyle = GradientStyles.Solid
radGridView1.TableElement.BackColor = Color.Red

@Mahmoud, thank you for the community effort. I have updated your Telerik Points accordingly. 

Regards,
