Hi, 

Please provide a code snippet to customize the appearance of the GridViewHyperlinkColumn cells. I'm trying to define the state of a cell based on the help topic at GridViewHyperlinkColumn Appearance.

I've found a workaround at HTML-like Text Formatting. The stylizing piece of code should basically be placed within the GridView CellFormatting event handler:

private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.CellElement is GridHyperlinkCellElement)
    {
        e.CellElement.Text = String.Format("<html><color=0,0,255>{0}", e.CellElement.Text);
    }
}

Hello Todd,

Thank you for writing.

Indeed, the CellFormatting event is used to add formatting to grid data cells. Here is a sample code snippet demonstrating how to customize the GridHyperlinkCellElement's style:
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    GridViewHyperlinkColumn column = new GridViewHyperlinkColumn();
    column.Name = "Hyperlink column";
    this.radGridView1.Columns.Add(column);
    this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;
 
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.telerik.com");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.microsoft.com");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.google.com");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.cnn.com");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.bbc.com");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.telerikwatch.com/");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("http://www.wikipedia.com");
}
 
private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    GridHyperlinkCellElement hyperlinkCell = e.CellElement as GridHyperlinkCellElement;
    if (hyperlinkCell != null)
    {
        GridViewHyperlinkCellInfo cellInfo = e.Row.Cells[e.Column.Name] as GridViewHyperlinkCellInfo;
        if (cellInfo.Visited)
        {
            hyperlinkCell.ContentElement.Text = String.Format("<html><color=0,0,255>{0}", e.CellElement.Text);
        }
        else
        {
            hyperlinkCell.ContentElement.Text = String.Format("<html><color=yellow>{0}", e.CellElement.Text);
        }
    }
}

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

Thanks, Dess! Here's the more complete reference of the HTML tags for formatting that I've found:
