Repainting a DataGridView for CellFormatting events

I have an event handler on the CellFormatting event of a DataGridView. This
event handler highlights cells that are below a certain threshold. This
threshold value may change based on user actions. Once changed, any new cells
that scroll into view will use the new threshold value, but how could I

CellFormatting event again for the cells already formatted?
