WinForms Conditional Formatting - Grid and TreeList Rules Editor

Thinking Out Loud
28 May 2015

We've had a lot of great feedback on our support for conditional formatting across platforms and products. In this release, we'll give you the ability to manipulate conditional formatting rules in both our WinForms Data Grid and Tree List - at runtime - using a dedicated designer.

The Conditional Formatting Rules Manager allows end-users to view/edit all formatting rules currently applied to the control and to create new rules as needed. 

The runtime designer ships with a comprehensive feature set and allows you to create the following condition types: 

  • based on value
  • based on date
  • based user defined expression
  • top or bottom rank values
  • above or below average
  • unique or duplicate values
  • color-scale formatting
  • data bars
  • formatting with icon sets

Hello Lluis,

Yes, you can store this customization in the layout if you enable the GridView.OptionsLayout.StoreAllOptions property.
