[<PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)>] member AlternatingRowStyle : TableItemStyle with get
Use the property to control the appearance of alternating data rows in a GridView control. When this property is set, the data rows are displayed alternating between the RowStyle settings and the 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, AlternatingRowStyle-ForeColor).
Nest an <AlternatingRowStyle> 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, AlternatingRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.
