    When the user selects rows on the grid, tis very hard to figure out which ones are selected or not.

    Is there a way at design time I can play with the color to be used for this?

     

    Thanks

    Hello, Deasun,           

    At design time you can't change the style of the cells in the grid. In order to customize the grid cells, it is suitable to handle the CellFormatting event and apply the desired style for the cells. Please refer to the following help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/gridview/cells/formatting-cells

    Alternatively, you can customize the theme that you are using in your application via Visual Style Builder and change the color for the selected state of the cell elements

    You can read more details about using the Visual Style Builder here:

    1.     Loading predefined themes
    2.     Working with Repository Items
    3.     Saving and Loading Theme Files
    4.     Loading Themes from an External File
    5.     Loading Themes from a Resource
    6.     Applying Theme to a Control

    I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
