I'm autogenerating the fields of my RadDataForm. 

Now I want to set different background colors for the TextBoxes being generated. For example Textbox of property 'Name' should have a green background and Textbox for property 'Age' should have a blue background.

In RadGridViews the autogenerator can set very comfortably GridViewAutoGeneratingColumnEventArgs.Column.CellStyle, but how do I do this in a DataForm?

Hi Peter,

You can try the following approach:
private void RadDataForm_AutoGeneratingField(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data.DataForm.AutoGeneratingFieldEventArgs e)
     {
         if (e.PropertyName=="Name")
         {
             e.DataField.Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(DataField_Loaded);           
         }
     }
 
     void DataField_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
     {
         if ((sender as DataFormDataField).Content is TextBox)
         {
             ((sender as DataFormDataField).Content as TextBox).Background = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Green);
         }
     }

I hope it helps.
