Highlights the selected row

This can be done by handling the PrepareViewStyleInfo event and by changing the text color and the backcolor of the selected ranges of cells.


void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
   GridControlBase grid = gridControl1;
   GridCurrentCell cc = gridControl1.CurrentCell;
   // Highlight the current row with SystemColors.Highlight and bold font
   if(e.RowIndex > grid.Model.Rows.HeaderCount && e.ColIndex >    grid.Model.Cols.HeaderCount && cc.HasCurrentCellAt(e.RowIndex))
      e.Style.Interior = new BrushInfo(SystemColors.Highlight);
      e.Style.TextColor = SystemColors.HighlightText;
      e.Style.Font.Bold = true;


Private Sub gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs)
   Dim grid As GridControlBase = gridControl1
   Dim cc As GridCurrentCell = gridControl1.CurrentCell
   ' Highlight the current row with SystemColors.Highlight and bold font
   If e.RowIndex > grid.Model.Rows.HeaderCount AndAlso e.ColIndex > grid.Model.Cols.HeaderCount AndAlso cc.HasCurrentCellAt(e.RowIndex) Then
      e.Style.Interior = New BrushInfo(SystemColors.Highlight)
      e.Style.TextColor = SystemColors.HighlightText
      e.Style.Font.Bold = True
   End If
End Sub

After applying the properties, the grid is shown as follows.
