  • Add references to System.Windows.Forms and System.Drawing and try the following:

    <DataGrid x:Name="dGrid1" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
                    <Button Content="Change colour" Click="Button_Click_1" />

        private void Button_Click_1(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
          System.Windows.Forms.ColorDialog dialog = new System.Windows.Forms.ColorDialog();
          if (dialog.ShowDialog() == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK) {
            Visual visual = sender as Visual;
            while (visual != null) {
              visual = VisualTreeHelper.GetParent(visual) as Visual;
              if (visual is DataGridRow) {
                DataGridRow row = visual as DataGridRow;
                row.Background = new SolidColorBrush(System.Windows.Media.Color.FromArgb(dialog.Color.A, dialog.Color.R, dialog.Color.G, dialog.Color.B));
