Easy way to a gradient background?
Link Posted: 20-Nov-2007 05:27
i searched for gradient and background in the forum, but i can't find, what i need.
Until now i don't use an stylist with my flygrid. And if possible i don't want to use one.

But i need to change the backgrounds colour. And this without a picture or something like this.
I can't find a good event (C#) to change the background colour and paint style.
If you could help me or give me an idea, it would be wonderfull.

You can refer to GradientStylist example, and pay attention to DrawControlBackground method.

Is it what you need?

I would like to say \"Yes\" or \"No\". The problem is, that i don't know, where i can find this example.

Now i found a way to make a gradient background. And its really easy. Only initialize the GradientStylist and set it as the stylist for your grid.

But i have still two questions.
1.) How can i choose the two colours for the gradient?
2.) And how can i make the gradient vertical?

Thanks agian.

Open the GradientStylist.cs (typically at C:\\Program Files\\9Rays.Net\\FlyGrid.Net\\SDK\\Stylist directory),
find the DrawControlBackground method,

as you see, it uses

All you need is to use vertical one instead.

Hi, i have a new Question...

I use the Grid in unbound mode (flygrid.Rows.Items.Add(xyz));
For this, i made a new TreeViewNode and this i add to the rows.
And to my 6 topic rows i add then their childs.

Now i have the Problem, that when i sort, the 6 topic rows will be sorted, too.
Can i force the grid, only to sort the childs and let the parents like they are.

Thanks for Respond.

Gru? Curar

Do you use a hierarchy column?
In case when you need to make grid sort only nested columns, you need to use nested grids (which have separate sorting)
