    Changing checkbox color in gridview

    Hi everyone,

    I have a ASP.Net gridview that is bound to a datasource. One of the fields in the datasource is a SQL bit value called Online which is linked to the gridview as a readonly checkbox.

    I am hoping to change the color of the checkbox depending on the Online value.

    Ie: Online = 1/true - Color checkbox green
    Online = 0/false - Color checkbox red

    Could someone guide me in the right direction with this?
    I am guessing I would have to do this around the datasource selected event?

    Thanks in advance.

    Create a handler for the RowDataBound event of the GridView.
    Inside that handler, find the checkbox and depending if it's checked or not, add either the CSS attribute to the control, or force the color change with the control's properties.

    The code should be something like this:

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            'Replace "CheckboxName" for the generic name of your checkbox
            Dim ChkBox as CheckBox = CType(e.Row.FindControl("CheckboxName"), CheckBox)
            If ChkBox.Checked = True Then
                ChkBox.CssClass = "chkbox1"
                ChkBox.CssClass = "chkbox2"
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
    I have not tested if the change of color works properly, but it looks about right.

    I do like the reward system. If you find that my post was useful, rate it.
