Setting BackColor of GridView cell dynamically

I have a number of colours in a database linked to different conditions,
and this data is displayed in a gridview. I want to set the BackColor
of a gridview cell dependent upon this value, for example FF0000 etc.
The code I have used gives me the error 'specified cast is not valid' :

<asp:TemplateFi eld HeaderText="For ecast Type"
SortExpression= "ForecastDescri ption">
<ItemTemplate >
ID="lblForecast Type" Text='<%# Eval("ForecastD escription") %>'
BackColor='<%# Eval("ForecastC olor") %>' runat="server"> </asp:Label>
<ItemStyle Height="24px"
Width="50px" />
</asp:TemplateFie ld>

Any ideas how to do this?

How can I set the BackColor of an ImageButton dynamically. Actually, I am getting colors as a string like "#FF00FF". I want them to set as BackColor to the imagebuttons at runtime. I have tried to get the Xml values in a DataTable and bind them in the HTML to the ImageButtons as BackColor = '<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataListItem,"Color") %>' It is giving error. I suppose that is due to the portion "#". How can I implement this?

I saw a lot of posts regarding the htmlencode property but I do not know how to turn that off for a...
