Change background color of a row using rowDataBound event

The following section explains how you can change the background color of a row. The rowDataBound event is triggered every time an access is made to any of the row or record inside the grid.

So based on the value in the record, you can set the background color of the row accordingly.

<div id="Grid"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function () {   
   
       $("#Grid").ejGrid({
   
           dataSource: window.gridData,
   
           allowPaging: true,
   
           allowSorting: true,
   
           columns: [
   
                   { field: "OrderID", headerText: "Order ID", width: 75, textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right },
   
                   { field: "CustomerID", headerText: "Customer ID", width: 80 },
   
                   { field: "EmployeeID", headerText: "Employee ID", width: 75, textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right },
   
                   { field: "Freight", width: 75, format: "{0:C}", textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right },
   
                   { field: "OrderDate", headerText: "Order Date", width: 80, format: "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}", textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right },
