FormatCondition Class

A value based conditional format.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v24.1.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.Core


public class FormatCondition :


This conditional format allows you to format cells comparing cell values with static values.

The image below shows a grid column whose Profit cells are red if their values are greater than 10M.


To create this conditional format in code, create the FormatCondition class instance and specify the following settings:

The following code sample illustrates how to define a conditional format in markup:

   <dxg:FormatCondition ValueRule="Greater" Value1="10000000" FieldName="Profit" PredefinedFormatName="LightRedFillWithDarkRedText" />   

The code sample below illustrates how to define the same conditional format in code-behind:

var profitFormatCondition = new FormatCondition() {
   ValueRule = ConditionRule.Greater,
   Value1 = 10000000,
   FieldName = "Profit",
   PredefinedFormatName = "LightRedFillWithDarkRedText"


If you use ColumnBase.Binding properties to populate columns with data, their ColumnBase.FieldName property values have the following format: RowData.Row.{Your binding path}.
