Problem:

Is it possible to set the background color of any given cell in a Windows Form dataGridView control to one other than the default?

Resolution:

Yes, you can set the background color of the individual cells in the same place where you set the ReadOnly property.

This should be placed in the Form_Shown event handler in order for it to take effect immediately.

Example:

    set dataGridView1::Rows[sub-1]::Cells["Amount"]::ReadOnly to true
    set dataGridView1::Rows[sub-1]::Cells["Amount"]::Style::BackColor to type Color::Red
