Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls::TableItemStyle^

A TableItemStyle object that contains the style properties of the currently selected item in the DataGrid control. The default value is an empty TableItemStyle object.

Use the SelectedItemStyle property to provide a custom style for the selected item in the DataGrid control. Common style attributes that can be adjusted include forecolor, backcolor, font, and content alignment within the cell. Providing a different style enhances the appearance of the DataGrid control.

Item style properties in the DataGrid control are inherited from one item style property to another through a hierarchy. Item style properties set lower in the hierarchy are inherited by item style properties higher in the hierarchy. For example, if you specify a red font for the ItemStyle property, all other item style properties in the DataGrid control will also have a red font. This allows you to provide a common appearance for the control by setting a single item style property. You can override the inherited style settings for an item style property that is higher in the hierarchy by setting its style properties. For example, you can specify a blue font for the AlternatingItemStyle property, overriding the red font specified in the ItemStyle property. The following table lists the hierarchy order from highest to lowest.

To specify a custom style for the selected item, place the <SelectedItemStyle> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DataGrid control. You can then list the style attributes within the opening <SelectedItemStyle> tag.
