Can I color the negative value red? How?

I did it in rowdatabound event. Is there a property that I could use to do the coloring?

Uae a TemplateField instead:[^]

Your code woould then be something like:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Price">
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='$<%#
            Bind("Price") %>'>
