[c#] Change GridView row color based on condition

I want to change a particular row color of gridview based on some condition, I am using ASP.NET with c#. Thank you.

This question is related to c# asp.net

The answer is


\\loop throgh all rows of the grid view  

if (GridView1.Rows[i - 1].Cells[4].Text.ToString() == "value1")
{
   GridView1.Rows[i - 1].ForeColor = Color.Black;
}
else if (GridView1.Rows[i - 1].Cells[4].Text.ToString() == "value2")
{
   GridView1.Rows[i - 1].ForeColor = Color.Blue;
}
else if (GridView1.Rows[i - 1].Cells[4].Text.ToString() == "value3")
{
   GridView1.Rows[i - 1].ForeColor = Color.Red;
}
else if (GridView1.Rows[i - 1].Cells[4].Text.ToString() == "value4")
{
   GridView1.Rows[i - 1].ForeColor = Color.Green;
}

This method modifies both the back color (to dark red) and the text (to white) if a specific string ("TextToMatch") occurs in one of the columns:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Row.Cells[8].Text.Equals("TextToMatch"))
    {
        e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkRed;
        e.Row.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.White;
    }
}

Or another way to write it:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Row.Cells[8].Text.Equals("TextToMatch"))
    {
        e.Row.Attributes.CssStyle.Value = "background-color: DarkRed; color: White";
    }
}

protected void DrugGridView_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

{
    // To check condition on integer value
    if (Convert.ToInt16(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Dosage")) == 50)
    {
      e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Cyan;
    }
}

 protected void gridview1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            Label lbl_Code = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("lblCode");
            if (lbl_Code.Text == "1")
            {
                e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#f2d9d9");
            }
        }
    }

Alternatively, you can cast the row DataItem to a class and then add condition based on the class properties. Here is a sample that I used to convert the row to a class/model named TimetableModel, then in if statement you have access to all class fields/properties:

protected void GridView_TimeTable_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                {
                    var tt = (TimetableModel)(e.Row.DataItem);
                     if (tt.Unpublsihed )
                       e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
                     else
                       e.Row.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
                }
            }
        }

Create GridView1_RowDataBound event for your GridView.

//Check if it is not header or footer row
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
{
    //Check your condition here
    If(Condition True)
    {
        e.Row.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Red // This will make row back color red
    }
}
