Hi ,

I am using RadGridView - Telerik.WinControls.GridView(2015.1.331.40) and using CellFormating event . The backcolor doesnt work here whereas the forecolor works . Am i missing anything ?

The code attached:


   private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        {
            // e.CellElement.ForeColor works though
             e.CellElement.BackColor = Color.Red;
            
        }

Hi,

Specifying the BackColor property for the CellElement is not enough. It is necessary to ensure that the DrawFill property is enabled as well and the appropriate GradientStyle is applied (e.g. Solid). I would highly encourage you to have a look at the following help article demonstrating how to properly use the CellFormatting event in RadGridView:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/cells/formatting-cells 

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

That worked pretty well. I set number of colours property and drawfill property to do the trick. That example doesn't mention how to use the gradient style property though . But just said that out of curiosity.

Setting the NumberOfColors property to 1 means that only the BackColor property will be used. It is pretty similar to setting the GradientStyle to Solid.  Depending on the NumberOfColors value, BackColor, BackColor2, 3, 4, can be used for achieving  GradientStyles.Linear
