Remarks

Use the EditRowStyle property to control the appearance of the data rows when a DetailsView control is in edit mode. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, EditRowStyle-ForeColor). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, EditRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.
