Can anyone tell me why the DataTriggers in the following XAML code are setting the background color of the entire row of the DataGrid and not the individual cell? I have the TargetType set to "DataGridCell".

<pre lang="xml"><DataGrid>
                <Style TargetType="DataGridCell">
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=aciton}" Value="ADDED">
                            <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightGreen"/>
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=aciton}" Value="UPDATED">
                            <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightBlue"/>
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=aciton}" Value="REMOVED">
                            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Salmon"/>

I have the TargetType set to "DataGridCell".
and it applies to all of them that satisfy condition! This looks to you like full row.

I know it is a nit, but action is misspelled

I would suspect that every cell in the row probably is looking at the same property aciton. Therefore when the value of aciton changes, every cell in the row gets the same color.
