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

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode::InnerProperty)]
public:
property TableItemStyle^ AlternatingRowStyle {
	TableItemStyle^ get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls::TableItemStyle
A reference to the TableItemStyle that represents the style of alternating data rows in a GridView control.

Use the AlternatingRowStyle 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 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, 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.

The following example demonstrates how to use the AlternatingRowStyle property to declaratively define the style for alternating data rows in a GridView control.
