How To Change GridView Row's Text Color

Here we are binding a GridView in Asp.Net and changing rows text color.

Points Of Remember:

1. Fire GridView's event RowDataBound.

2. Change font color in RowDataBound event according to your logic.

3. Add namespace System.Data and System.Data.SqlClient in your C# page.

<!DOCTYPE html>


<html xmlns="">

<head runat="server">




    <form id="form1" runat="server">


        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false"

            OnRowDataBound="GridView1_RowDataBound" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333">


                <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" />

                <asp:BoundField DataField="Branch" HeaderText="Branch" />

                <asp:BoundField DataField="City" HeaderText="City" />


            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />

            <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" />







C# Codes :

using System.Data;

using System.Data.SqlClient;


public partial class GridView : System.Web.UI.Page


    SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection( @"Data Source=JITESH-PC\SQL;Initial

                                                                              Catalog=db_Student;Integrated Security=True");


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


        if (!IsPostBack)





    //method for binding GridView

    protected void BindGridView()


        DataTable dt = new DataTable ();        

        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter( "Select name,branch,city from tbl_student" , con);





        if (dt.Rows.Count > 0)


            GridView1.DataSource = dt;





    protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)


        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)


            if (e.Row.Cells[1].Text == "ECE")


                // change the color

                e.Row.Cells[1].ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
