the complete solution is below:

for Start VS2010 then Add a new project named as <wpf_datagrid_propertytriggers> using a WPF Application:
then Add This Code in MainWindow.xmal

<br />
using System;<br />
using System.Collections.Generic;<br />
using System.Linq;<br />
using System.Text;<br />
using System.Collections.ObjectModel;<br />
<br />
namespace WPF_DataGrid_PropertyTriggers<br />
{<br />
    public class Employee<br />
    {<br />
        public int EmpNo { get; set; }<br />
        public string EmpName { get; set; }<br />
        public string DeptName { get; set; }<br />
        public string Designation { get; set; }<br />
        public int Experience { get; set; }<br />
        public int Salary { get; set; }<br />
    }<br />
<br />
    public class EmployeeCollection : ObservableCollection<Employee><br />
    {<br />
<br />
        public EmployeeCollection()<br />
        {<br />
<br />
            Add(new Employee() { EmpNo = 101, EmpName = "Ramesh", DeptName = "IT", Designation = "Manager", Experience = 15, Salary = 300000 });<br />
            Add(new Employee() { EmpNo = 102, EmpName = "Ajay", DeptName = "Accts", Designation = "Clerk", Experience = 12, Salary = 200000 });<br />
