Is the rowDataBound event getting called at all? It looks right to me. Or is it some code inside the event that isn't working as it should?


As its not running in an AJAX panel from what I can see, would the page also need a postback to apply the colour change? Admittedly I lack experience within ASP.Net but that would be my first idea :)
