Lightswitch datagrid change cell/column border color

    Question

  • Is possible to change border color for datagrid cells or column?

    I want to to help user to quickly indicate which cells are writable and which are not.

    When we have many new rows in grid they looks grey and it's a little difficult for  users to focus to next appropriate cell (in my situation I have more than 4 column)

  • One fast solution I can think of is Pixata Extensions that include a stylable textbox

    In general you can look for control extensions that allow you to override themed styling and replace in the grid row the default textbox with a custom styled one. This is the easiest and more "LightSwitch" way to achieve what you want.

    Good luck :-).
