How can I change the color of a single cell in a SalesLogix datagrid??

Question:

I have a datagrid that has a field called "Difference". If the value in the "Difference" column < 0 then I want the font color to be red (clred), otherwise I want to keep it black. I've been playing with CustomDrawCell(Sender, ByRef Node, ByRef Column, IsSelected, IsFocused, ByRef Text, ByRef Color, ByRef Alignment, ByRef Font, ByRef FontColor) , but I'm changing the entire row to red instead of the cell. This datagrid will have multiple rows and some will have a difference < 0 and others won't, I just need the cells with difference < 0 to be red.

Answer:

Coloring a grid
================
 

For the Grid - select the property "OnCustomDrawCell" - this will create a sub based on the name of the grid followed by CustomDrawCell e.g.
--------------|-------------|
Sub dgServicesCustomDrawCell(Sender, ByRef Node, ByRef Column, IsSelected, IsFocused, ByRef Text, ByRef Color, ByRef Alignment, ByRef Font, ByRef FontColor)
 

Dim sFieldName
Dim vStatus
Dim lColumnIndex

sFieldName = UCase ( Column.FieldName ) ' Field you want to look for

Select Case sFieldName
Case "A2_STATUS" ' ALIAS name of the column in QB
lColumnIndex = GetColumnIndexByFieldName ( dgServices,"A2_STATUS" ) ' Used so that grid can be sorted/grouped
vStatus = Node.Values ( lColumnIndex ) ' Gets the actual value
End Select
 

If Not IsNull ( vStatus ) Then ' Ensure you check for Nulls
 

Select Case vStatus
Case "Open"
FontColor = &H00000000 ' in v7.x - you can use enum of clBlack, clGreen etc
Case "Lost"
FontColor = &H000000FF
Case "Won"
FontColor = &H00800000
Font.Bold = True
End Select
End If

End Sub
 

'==========================================================================================
Function GetColumnIndexByFieldName ( ByRef Grid, ByVal FieldName )
Dim i
Dim lColumnIndex

lColumnIndex = -1
For i = 0 To Grid.Columns.Count - 1
If UCase ( Grid.Columns(i).FieldName ) = UCase ( FieldName ) Then
lColumnIndex = i
Exit For
End If
Next
GetColumnIndexByFieldName = lColumnIndex
End Function
