Is it possible to set the backcolor of the very 1st item in my RadGrid?  I would like to format it green while alternating the colors white and gray on the remaining fields.

Also I would like to add a number count in the 1st column.  What would be the best way going about this?

Hi Kurt Kluth,

Please try the following code snippet to format first row and add row number to a column.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="RowNumber">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:Label ID="lblRowNumber" runat="server" />
    </ItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

C#:
void rgrdSample_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  if (rgrdSample.Items.Count > 0)
 {
  //Format first row of grid
  rgrdSample.Items[0].BackColor = Color.Green;
 }
}
protected void rgrdSample_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{   
 //Set row count
 if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
 {
  int rowCounter = 0;
  Label lblRowNumber = e.Item.FindControl("lblRowNumber") as Label;
  rowCounter = rgrdSample.MasterTableView.PageSize * rgrdSample.MasterTableView.CurrentPageIndex;
  lblRowNumber.Text = (e.Item.ItemIndex + 1 + rowCounter).ToString();
 }
}

Thanks,
Princy

That worked beautifully thank you for that response.  Is there anyway to tweak it so the green background is only for record #1.  I realized that after I did it that while paging the 1st row on each page was green.

Hi Kurt Kluth,

You can check if its the first page using CurrentPageIndex property and set the color to the row.

C#:
if (rgrdSample.Items.Count > 0 && rgrdSample.CurrentPageIndex==0)
{
  rgrdSample.Items[0].BackColor = Color.Green;
}

Thanks,
Princy
