Below is an example of changing the individual row colors based on one of the DataGridView's columns.
While this is not hard to do, the property isn't always where you think it should be, its hidden within the rows
Here's the example:
foreach (DataGridViewRow row in mydataGridView.Rows)
string RowType = row.Cells.Value.ToString();
if (RowType == "Type A")
row.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Red;
row.DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.White;
else if (RowType == "Type B")
row.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
row.DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Black;
A Good thing to do is add this piece of code in a method like
and call it every time your DataGridView is bound or rebound to a piece of data.
