Hi,

I have a RadGridView that is bound to a collection of my business objects.

Based on separate data received from the server I sometime need to update things like the foreground color of a cell value for a particular row.

I can do this a brute force way by  accessing the row item and then modifying a specific cell BUT I don't want to make any assumptions about which cell is which.  I would prefer to be able to access the cell by using the row and the column id or something like that in order to get the correct cell.

So, for example, if the grid was the following:

First Name |  Last Name |
---------------------------------
John           | Henry
---------------------------------
Dustin        | Pedroia


and I received some info from the server that required me to change the Last Name to be in red for just Dustin Pedroia.

How can I do something like   rowItem.getColumn(LastName).cellvalue.foreground = "#FFFFFF"?

Does this make sense???

Thanks!

Hello fortpointuiguy,

 RadGridView is UI virtual control similar to other items controls like DataGrid, ListBox ,etc and working with UI parts of the grid like cells, rows, etc is highly unrecommended. The grid cells and rows will have different data every time you scroll - more about container recycling can be found here

I strongly suggest you to check our demos related to style and template selectors.
