Thanks for your reply,
Indeed your test program does the expected job, with one unexpected behavior, if I remove the "setbackcolor", the cell background of the cell becomes darkgrey
However I still have the problem in my Program ...
Here is the code I am using
Dim HorseCell As GridViewCellInfo = gvEntry.CurrentRow.Cells("CurrentName")
HorseCell.Style.CustomizeFill = True
HorseCell.Style.BackColor = Color.Yellow
HorseCell.Style.ForeColor = Color.Red
This code is invoked on the Click event of a popup menu:
1. I need to click on another cell or row of the grid to see the change
2. The BackColor does change to Yellow
3. The forecolor does not change and remains black
If I remove the Backcolor= Color.Yellow line the cell backcolor will be drak grey as in your test program
I don't know if it is relevant but my grid is databound to a database datasource.
If you have no other suggestion I'll create a standalone project to demonstrate the problem
