Changing grid backcolor without row rule

I’m trying to change the backcolor of a grid in an updatable dashboard. Row rule works but I want to change the color dynamically as a cell is updated. To get started I tried to change the entire grid color but it’s not working.

What am I missing?

		e.Row.Appearance.ForeColor = Color.White;


I think RowRules are still a better option. Try this:

I would fuse row rule if I can specify the color dynamically based on the cell data.
When I tried the rule with custom rule it seems to process this custom setting once and doesn’t evaluate it again. I tried it in the condition as well as in action section but it will not change the color.

		//Create a custom control setting
		ControlSettings myCustomSetting = new ControlSettings();
		//Set it orange

You can specify the color in a row rule if you setup custom styles.
