Change Cell Color

Okay here’s just a little code snippet that I’ve done today to change the cell colors by validating the Numberic values if it’s a signed value it get’s the color rad otherwise green you can modify it how ever you want it to be.

For Visual Basic
Private Sub ChangeCellFontColor(ByVal DataGridView As DataGridView, ByVal ColumnName As String)
        Dim Index As Integer = 0
        If Not (DataGridView.Rows.Count) = 0 Then
            If Not (String.IsNullOrEmpty(ColumnName)) Then
                For Index = 0 To DataGridView.Rows.Count - 1
                    If IsNumeric((DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Value)) Then
                        If DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Value < 0 Then
                            DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Style.ForeColor = Color.Red
                            DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Style.ForeColor = Color.Green
                        End If
                    End If
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
For CSharp
private void ChangeCellFontColor(DataGridView DataGridView, string ColumnName)
	int Index = 0;
	if (!((DataGridView.Rows.Count) == 0)) {
		if (!(string.IsNullOrEmpty(ColumnName))) {
			for (Index = 0; Index <= DataGridView.Rows.Count - 1; Index++) {
				if (Information.IsNumeric((DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Value))) {
					if (DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Value < 0) {
						DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Style.ForeColor = Color.Red;
					} else {
						DataGridView.Rows(Index).Cells(ColumnName).Style.ForeColor = Color.Green;
