# ItemStyle

 ItemStyle is an option for Grid, Column and related constructs that specifies styles to use for items.
• ItemStyle->s specifies that all items should use style specification s.
• Item style specifications can include all options to Item, as well as options to Style. Directive[opt1, opt2, ...] can be used to specify multiple options.
• Item style specifications are applied to the complete region of an item, not just its contents, so that, for example, backgrounds extend to the edge of the item.
• The settings for ItemStyle can be given as follows to apply separately to different items:
 spec apply spec to all items {specx} apply specx at successive horizontal positions {specx,specy} apply speck at successive horizontal and vertical positions also allow explicit rules for individual i, j elements
• The speck can have the following forms:
 {s1,s2,...,sn} use s1 through sn; then use defaults {{c}} use c in all cases {{c1,c2}} alternate between c1 and c2 {{c1,c2,...}} cycle through all ci {s,{c}} use s, then repeatedly use c {s1,{c},sn} use s1, then repeatedly use c, but use sn at the end {s1,s2,...,{c1, c2, ... }, sm, ... , sn} use the first sequence of si at the beginning, then cyclically use the ci, then use the last sequence of si at the end {s1,s2,...,{},sm,...,sn} use the first sequence of si at the beginning and the last sequence at the end {i1->v1,i2->v2,...} specify what to use at positions ik {spec,rules} use rules to override specifications in spec
• If multiple speci or rules specify styles for a particular element, the styles are combined in the order they appear.
Style all the elements in the grid:
Style the first row:
Use a style from the current stylesheet:
Style all the elements in the grid:
 Out[1]=

Style the first row:
 Out[1]=

Use a style from the current stylesheet:
 Out[1]=

Blue and red font colors for the first and second horizontal positions:
Blue and red font colors for the first and last horizontal positions:
Blue and red font colors for the first and second vertical positions:
Alternating blue and red font colors:
Alternating font colors with orange superimposed in the first and last positions:
Style specific elements:
Style a region:
Overlapping specifications are unified when possible:
BaseStyle can be used to specify a style for the entire grid:
Column styles have precedence over row styles:
Use Directive to wrap multiple style directives:
