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

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

public TableItemStyle AlternatingRowStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public TableItemStyle get_AlternatingRowStyle ()

public function get AlternatingRowStyle () : TableItemStyle

Property Value

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

Use the AlternatingRowStyle property to control the appearance of alternating data rows in a DetailsView control. When this property is 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 in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, AlternatingRowStyle-ForeColor). 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.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the AlternatingRowStyle property to specify the font and style settings for the alternating data rows in the DetailsView control.
