The image below demonstrates various types of conditional formatting.


Conditional Formatting uses the Criteria Language Syntax to check if a cell value matches certain criteria. To highlight a row/cell using a Color or Brush stored at the data source level, use techniques from this topic - How to Conditionally Set Background and Foreground for Grid Rows and Cells.


To apply format conditions when you define a custom CellTemplate, the template should contain a BaseEdit class descendant declared as demonstrated in the following topic: Custom In-Place Cell Editors.
