Public ReadOnly Property RowStyle As TableItemStyle

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle

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

Use the RowStyle property to control the appearance of the data rows in a DetailsView 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 in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, RowStyle-ForeColor). 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 specify the font and style settings for the data rows in the DetailsView control.
