oncellvalidated and background color

More information on this topic is available in the documentation section: /aw.system.html/setstyle.html.

i am using this code to change the background color of the row when a cell edit is detected. The problem is that even though the row color is updated, the entire grid freezes. i'm still on v2 rc1.

grid2.onCellValidated = function(text, col, row){
try {
var template = this.getRowTemplate(row);
template.setStyle("background-color", "orange");
} catch(e) {alert(e) }

i keep answering my own questions - bad.

grid2.onCellValidating = function(textcolrow){
try {
template this.getRowTemplate(row);
// this doesn't do anything but will retain the color change 
        // if the control gets deactivated
// this is the line that actually changes the row color for me
template.element().style.backgroundColor "orange";        
catch(e) {alert(e) }

there is currently (2.0) a bug in setStyle() method - if the style name contains "-" symbol it will not be immediately updated on screen. Your code would work fine if you use "background" instead of "background-color".

obj.onCellValidated = function(textcolrow){
template this.getRowTemplate(row);

//does not work due to the setStyle bug
    //template.setStyle("background-color", "orange");

    // works

Thanks alex that worked.

I hope you can help me answer this question, does the grid support multiple cell selections? (not rows) - i need to be able to select a range of cells. If not is there a work around?

I believe it is like this:

template.setStyle("background", "url(../AW/styles/aqua/bg1.png)");

I used this technique to change cell background when the color changed. The problem was that the selected cell highlighting stopped working (the white text worked, but the blue background failed). I found this other message with the solution:

Readd these styles with !important

.aw-cells-selected, .aw-rows-selected {
color: #fff!important;
background: #396FA2!important;

.aw-rows-selected .aw-grid-cell {
background: none!important;

I found the solution in this message from ASJ:
