Hello all,

I am adding data manually to a gridview with the following code:
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
DataColumn dc = new DataColumn("column1");

DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
dr["column1"] = "value1";

myDataGrid.DataSource = dt;

But what I need know is during the addition of this row I need this row of that gridview in a different color that I specify. Is there a way that I can do it? I was looking at the row properties such as backcolor or so but I didnt see it. I also dont want to do it while databound because i am adding the values manually and in random places so I can not keep track of the row index. If this is doable please advise.

Add another column in your datatable as "customRow" set its value to yes wherever you add a row manually. In your gridview add a label(invisible) with text property set as "customRow". In rowdatabound evend use findcontrol method to find the text of the label and if it is "yes", add
e.Row.Attributes.Add("style","this.class='your css style'");
