public class Format :

The following members return Format objects:


The Format class instances are used to set the GridControl’s ExpressionConditionBase.Format and PivotGridControl’s ExpressionConditionBase.Format properties.

The code sample below illustrates how to create the top-bottom conditional formatting rule with a custom format in markup for GridControl.

   <dxg:TopBottomRuleFormatCondition Rule="TopItems" Threshold="20" FieldName="Profit">
      <dx:Format Background="Purple"/> 

The code sample below illustrates how to define the same conditional formatting rule in code-behind for GridControl.

var profitFormatCondition = new TopBottomRuleFormatCondition() {
   Rule = TopBottomRule.TopItems,
   Threshold = 20,    
   FieldName = "Profit", 
   Format = new Format() {
      Background = Brushes.Purple
