Change Grid Cell based on date

Change Grid Cell based on date

I trying to change a cell in my gridview based on a past due date. So anything that's greater then "Today" would get highlited. can't seem to get it to work. any help would be appreciated

Protected Sub dg1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs)

Dim currDate As DateTime = Convert.ToDateTime(DateTime.Now.ToString("{0:d}"))

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
If Convert.ToDateTime(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "DUE_DATE").ToString()) < currDate Then
e.Row.Cells(0).BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow
End If
End If

End Sub

RE: Change Grid Cell based on date

got it...

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
If (e.Row.DataItem("DUE_DATE") <= Now()) Then
e.Row.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.White
e.Row.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Red
End If
End If

RE: Change Grid Cell based on date
