To change the font color of a specific cell by turning on/off the Checkbox, follow the steps below.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     Sub CheckBox1CheckedChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
  2.         If checkBox1.Checked = True Then
  3.             DataGridView1(1, 1).Style.ForeColor = Color.Blue
  4.         Else
  5.             DataGridView1(1, 1).Style.ForeColor = Color.Red
  6.         End If
  7.     End Sub

You can do this:

= new DataGridViewCellStyle { ForeColor = Color.Yellow};
You can also set whatever style settings (font, for example) in that cell style constructor.

And if you want to set a particular column text color you could do:

dataGridView1.Columns[colName].DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Yellow;
dataGridView1.Columns[0].DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Blue;

So if you want to color based on having a value in the cell, something like this will do the trick:

private void dataGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs e)
if (dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value != null && !string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value.ToString()))
dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Style = new DataGridViewCellStyle { ForeColor = Color.Orange, BackColor = Color.Blue };
dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Style = dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle;
