How to: Apply Conditional Formatting to Grid Cells using the Date Occurring Format Condition

  • 2 min to read

The Date Occurring format condition (FormatConditionDateOccurring) allows you to apply formatting to date-time values of a specific date and/or date interval relative to today.

This example demonstrates how to apply conditional formatting to Grid cells whose values fall into one of the predefined intervals.


The complete sample project How to Apply Date Occurring Conditional Formatting to Grid Cells is available in the DevExpress Examples repository.

using DevExpress.DashboardCommon;
using DevExpress.XtraEditors;

namespace Grid_DateOccurring {
    public partial class Form1 : DevExpress.XtraEditors.XtraForm {
        public Form1() {

            dashboardViewer1.DataSourceOptions.ObjectDataSourceLoadingBehavior = DevExpress.DataAccess.DocumentLoadingBehavior.LoadAsIs;

            Dashboard dashboard = new Dashboard();
            dashboardViewer1.Dashboard = dashboard;
            GridDashboardItem grid = (GridDashboardItem)dashboard.Items["gridDashboardItem1"];
            GridDimensionColumn date = (GridDimensionColumn)grid.Columns[0];

            GridItemFormatRule dateOccurringRule = new GridItemFormatRule(date);
            FormatConditionDateOccurring dateOccurringCondition = new FormatConditionDateOccurring();
            dateOccurringCondition.DateType = FilterDateType.MonthAgo1 | FilterDateType.MonthAgo2;
            dateOccurringCondition.StyleSettings = 
                new AppearanceSettings(FormatConditionAppearanceType.PaleOrange);
            dateOccurringRule.Condition = dateOccurringCondition;
            dateOccurringRule.ApplyToRow = true;
