MORE INFORMATION

SharePoint Designer 2007 and Expression Web

In SharePoint Designer 2007 and in Expression Web, you can apply conditional XSLT formatting for information in a Data view that is being returned from an XML data source. For example, a Data view may include data that is contained in a static XML file or that comes from a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services list.

To modify the XSLT to make every other row in the Data view a different color, follow these steps:
  1. Click in any table cell that contains XML data.
  2. On the Table menu, point to Select, and then click Row.
  3. Click the Task Panes menu, and then click Conditional Formatting.
  4. In the Conditional Formatting task pane, click Apply Formatting on the Create menu.
  5. In the Condition Criteria dialog box, click Click here to add a new clause.
  6. In the Field Name column, click [Row Number].
  7. In the Condition column, click IsOdd.
  8. Click OK.
  9. In the Modify Style dialog box, click Background.
  10. In the Background area, click the Gray color swatch in the Background-color menu.

Every other row is now gray.
