Hi Telerik Team,

I have a table in one of my reports and I now want to change the background color of specific rows, depending of data which is contained in the row.

How can I achieve that?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Peter Voigtmann,

The best way to change the background color is to use Conditional Formatting.

Let me know If you need additional assistance.

Hi Andrei,

To set the background color of a table row, you need to set the background colors for all the cells in the row. 
You can set the background color of the textbox in the cell like this:
this.textBox1.Style.BackgroundColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow;

However, the suggested approach for changing the styles of items at run time is by using Conditional Formatting, as it gives you great flexibility over the styling of items.
Another approach is to combine Bindings with User Functions. You can bind the Style.Background property of certain items to your custom user function which returns System.Drawing.Color and you can pass the value of the cell as an argument to that function. This way you can work with the runtime data and provide more complex custom over the color that will be returned. 

Kind regards,
