Background colour selected cell/column

I am searching for 2 hours now how to change the background colour for a selected cell/column.
I am using the CellBackgroundPaint to change the colours for non-selectsd cells, but the selected ones keep being blue.

Please help me a bit.

Thanks in advanced.

Andre.

You need to “return true” to indicating that you are handling the painting.

In the CellBackgroundPaint method:

[code]if me.Selected(row) then
g.ForeColor = [MyColourReferenceForASelected(Highlight)Row]
else
g.ForeColor = [MyColourReferenceForAStandardRow]
end if

g.FillRect(0, 0, g.Width, g.Height)

Return True
[/code]

Returning True from this method will ensure that the system does not overwrite what you have done.

Wow, thanks Nona and Simon for the fast and perfect solution.
