CellStyleCelector with particular behavior + Blinking


I'm trying your XamlGrid to substitute a Telerik one that goes under pressure with a lot of data and high frequency update. With no style it performs really well but now I need to test your under pressure with style selections.

The first thing I need to verify is that all the features I've under your competitor works fine here.

In my DTO I've got a field IdStatus that based on this value it colors the whole row of a color taken from DB.

Now consider the following Converter

 public class StatusRowColorStyleSelectorBase : IValueConverter
        protected Dictionary<int, SolidColorBrush> StatuStyles;

        public StatusRowColorStyleSelectorBase()
            StatuStyles = new Dictionary<int, SolidColorBrush>
                {(int) StatusTypeEnum.Inserted, CreateStyle("Transparent")},
                {(int) StatusTypeEnum.Cancelled, CreateStyle("#ff4500")},
                {(int) StatusTypeEnum.Validated, CreateStyle("#00bfff")},
                {(int) StatusTypeEnum.Exported, CreateStyle("#90ee90")}

        private static SolidColorBrush CreateStyle(string color)
            var convertFromString = ColorConverter.ConvertFromString(color);
            if (convertFromString is Color c)
                return new SolidColorBrush(c);


            return new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Transparent);
        public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
            if (value is IStatus status)
                return StatuStyles[status.IdStatus];

            return value;

        public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter, CultureInfo culture)
            throw new NotImplementedException();

And I've seen a sample where you do

<igDP:XamDataGrid Name="xamDataGrid1" BindToSampleData="True">
                <Style TargetType="{x:Type igDP:DataRecordCellArea}">
                        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}, Path= Record.Cells[1].Value}" Value="Sales" >
                            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Orange" />

In this code you check on Cell[1], what if the user reorders the column?

It's possible to pass to the converter the whole DataItem?
