This tutorial describes how to apply odd and even styles to report controls, e.g. to alternate the background color for each record.
To utilize odd and even styles, do the following.
Create a table report.
Select the detail table, and in the Property Grid, expand its Styles.
Invoke the drop-down list for the Even Style, and click (New).
This will create a style and assign it to the control's Even Style.
Now, expand the Even Style property, and adjust the required options, e.g. set the Background Color to ControlLight.
If required, perform the same steps, to create and assign an odd style, as well.
Switch to the Preview Tab, and view the result.
