Hi,

I have two styling issues wtih the GridView.  The first is I am trying to by default set a column style to not display the Filter for a column by default (we only have a few columns in each grid that are filterable).  My code is as follows:

<Style  TargetType="telerik:GridViewColumn" >
        <Setter Property="IsFilterable" Value="False"/>
    </Style>

Second, I have a cell style set as well but I now when I set the Background brush for a column it has no affect.  What am I doing wrong?

<Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell" >
       <Setter Property="Template">
           <Setter.Value>
               <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type telerik:GridViewCell}">
                   <Border BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}">
                       <ContentPresenter Content="{TemplateBinding Content}" ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding ContentTemplate}"/>
                   </Border>
               </ControlTemplate>
           </Setter.Value>
       </Setter>
       <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="#FFEFEFEF" />
       <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="0,0,1,0" />
       <Setter Property="Margin" Value="2,0,0,0"/>
       <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value="Center"/>
       <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Stretch"/>
        
   </Style>

In the gridview I am setting the background as such:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding HoursCompleted}" Header="Hours" UniqueName="HoursCompleted" DataFormatString=" {0:n2}" HeaderTextAlignment="Center" Width="60"  Background="#33FDA500"/>

Hello David,



Since the columns of RadGridView are not visual elements you cannot create a style targeted at GridViewColumn and set any property in similar manner. If you want to apply the specified column Background and your newly created cell style you should set the appropriate Background as shown below:
 
<Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell" >
       <Setter Property="Template">
           <Setter.Value>
               <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type telerik:GridViewCell}">
                   <Border Background="{TemplateBinding Background}" BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}">
                       <ContentPresenter Content="{TemplateBinding Content}" ContentTemplate="{TemplateBinding ContentTemplate}"/>
                   </Border>
               </ControlTemplate>
           </Setter.Value>
       </Setter>
       <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="#FFEFEFEF" />
       <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="0,0,1,0" />
       <Setter Property="Margin" Value="2,0,0,0"/>
       <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value="Center"/>
       <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Stretch"/>
   </Style>


When you predefine the template of a cell in such manner you will loose any of its effects such as selection, mouseover etc. By that reason I would recommend you to modify the default template of GridViewCell and remove the unused elements.
