Use the "Style" property -

DataGridView1.Item(ColumnIndex, RowIndex).Style.BackColor = Color
DataGridView1.Item(ColumnIndex, RowIndex).Style.ForeColor = Color

or

DataGridView1.CurrentCell.Style.BackColor = Color
DataGridView1.CurrentCell.Style.ForeColor = Color
Hope this answers your question.

DGK,

AFAIK can you as a from a normal textbox, can you not colour the background
of a textbox backgroud. There is no background at all in those.

You can change the borders.
Here a sample from that on our website.

I hope this helps,

Yes, that works, thanks. Amazing how hard that is to find.

Shane,

There are people who are able to understand what somebody (although it is
written syntactical wrong), and those who don't. It is a fine selection to
select real developers.

I did correct this sentence afterwards to much it had to be.

Cor, at the risk of maintaining confusion, I still don't know what
you're on about!!

The original poster asked for a way to change the color of the
foreground and background of a DataGridView Cell. I provided an answer
(which was later acknowledged as being what the original poster was
seeking) but around 6 hours later you posted a reply which looks like
you're saying it can't be done, or at the least, should be done some
other way????

I respect any comments you may have, after all you are a MVP, but PLEASE
carefully explain what point you're trying to make by correcting my
suggestion, if that is what you're trying to do???

Shane,

Simple, I was reading a DataGrid and did not know that it was done in the
DataGridView in this way. Just word blindness at that moment. Can happen to
me.

I am glad that this is as well done in the datagridview, so now I know that.

But a simple message attending me on this, does more than making a kind of
flame from it.

Thanks,

Cor

ShaneO,

Now I think that I remember me again why I wrote that message.

I thought that Ken had made a complete sample and was searching for that,
but could not find it and that took some time.

Than I remembered me that not existing of a background in a textbox and
found it stupid from myself that I had searched for it.

At that time I was forgotten that you had given an answer

Than I took the sample I had found (which is one of me) and wrote that text.
Although I could not find the right words to describe that and made that
hash text.

Now I know from your message that it is done direct in the cell.

There was not any more intention with that.

If you had asked this direct, than I had probably explained direct. However
flaming me by asking to the public what I had written did not give me a good
thought about you. You could have done that direct to me, and helped me with
that, the sentence was unreadable without investigation.

As the OP, I'd just like to thank everyone for helping. I can't
imagine what I'd do without the folks here.

Cor, I'm sorry if it appeared as a "Flame". It was my poor attempt at
humour, which obviously does not translate well in a written message.
