GridView.RowStyle Property

Gets a reference to the TableItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of the data rows in a GridView control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public TableItemStyle RowStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public TableItemStyle get_RowStyle ()

public function get RowStyle () : TableItemStyle

Not applicable.

Property Value

A reference to the TableItemStyle that represents the style of the data rows in a GridView control.

Use the RowStyle property to control the appearance of the data rows in a GridView control. When the AlternatingRowStyle property is also set, the data rows are displayed alternating between the RowStyle settings and the AlternatingRowStyle settings. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively using one of the following methods:

  • Place an attribute in the opening tag of the GridView control in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, RowStyle-ForeColor).

  • Nest a <RowStyle> element between the opening and closing tags of the GridView control.

The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, RowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RowStyle property to declaratively define the style for the item rows in a GridView control.
