Namespace: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.v19.1.dll


public event GetCustomRowCellStyleEventHandler RecordCellStyle

Event Data

The RecordCellStyle event's data class is GetCustomRowCellStyleEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Appearance Gets the appearance settings used to paint the cell currently being processed.
CellIndex Gets the processed cell’s index. Inherited from RowCellEventArgs.
RecordIndex Gets the index of the record containing the processed cell. Inherited from RowCellEventArgs.
Row Gets the processed row. Inherited from RowEventArgs.


The RecordCellStyle event is raised for individual cells before they need to be repainted. The referenced cell can be identified using the event parameter’s RowEventArgs.Row, RowCellEventArgs.RecordIndex and RowCellEventArgs.CellIndex properties. To customize the cell’s appearance settings use the GetCustomRowCellStyleEventArgs.Appearance property.

Individual cells can also be custom painted. Handle the VGridControlBase.CustomDrawRowValueCell event for this purpose.


Never change cell values or modify the control’s layout on this event, or any other event designed to tune the control’s appearance. Any action that causes a layout update can cause the control to malfunction.


The following example handles the VGridControlBase.RecordCellStyle event to modify the appearance of the “Price” row’s cells whose values are greater than 30,000.

GetCustomRowCellStyle event

using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Events;

private void vGridControl1_RecordCellStyle(object sender, GetCustomRowCellStyleEventArgs e) {
   if(e.Row != rowPrice) return;
   if(Convert.ToInt32(vGridControl1.GetCellValue(e.Row, e.RecordIndex)) > 30000) {
      e.Appearance.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
      e.Appearance.ForeColor = Color.Black;
      e.Appearance.Font = new Font(e.Appearance.Font.Name, 
        e.Appearance.Font.Size, FontStyle.Bold);
