Object Type Path to EnableAppearanceHotTrackedRow
.OptionsSelection .EnableAppearanceHotTrackedRow


If the view’s OptionsSelection.EnableAppearanceHotTrackedRow option is enabled, the grid control highlights rows under the mouse cursor using special background and foreground colors.


The default row hot-track colors are different for different skins. Use the view.Appearance.HotTrackedRow property to specify custom background and foreground colors used to paint hot-tracked rows (the ForeColor, BackColor, BackColor2 and GradientMode properties are only in effect).

The default behavior overrides the column’s appearance settings (see GridColumn.AppearanceCell) by row hot-track colors.

Row hot-tracking override column's appearance settings

Enable the GridColumn.AppearanceCell.Options.HighPriority option to allow the column’s appearance settings to override the row hot-track colors.

Column's appearance settings override row hot-track colors

Grid control does not support hot-tracked rows when the GridOptionsView.AllowCellMerge option is set to true.
