I am getting this error while using appearance setting to color a cell

'DevExpress.XtraGrid.StyleFormatCondition' does not contain a definition for 'Appearance'

this the code that i'm trying to use, please help

private void gridView3_RowCellStyle(object sender, DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid.RowCellStyleEventArgs e)
    GridView View = sender as GridView;
    if (e.Column.FieldName == "First Name" &&
        string.IsNullOrEmpty(View.GetRowCellDisplayText(e.RowHandle, e.Column)))
        e.Appearance.BackColor = Color.DeepSkyBlue;

Use like the following:

e.Row.Cells[0].BackColor = Color.Red;

in place of

e.Appearance.BackColor = Color.DeepSkyBlue;

Please see this thread if it helps.

Change Cell color


you need to handle GridView.CustomDrawCell event.
Private Sub grdView_CustomDrawCell(sender As Object, e As RowCellCustomDrawEventArgs)
