How to: Set Conditional Formatting Rules in XAML

IMPORTANT

This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

This example shows how to create conditional formatting rules for the GridControl in XAML.

GridControl_ConditionalFormatting

Formatting rules specified by the FormatConditionBase class descendants (DataBarFormatCondition, FormatCondition, TopBottomRuleFormatCondition and IconSetFormatCondition) are added to the GridControl.FormatConditions collection.
