Warning
From version 26, BrushStyle is kept for backward compatibility. This property is replaced by BackgroundStyle.
The BackgroundStyle property is used to get and modify the background style of cells in tables and/or treeview tables. This property is effective only if the row, column or cell uses a background color specified with the BackgroundColor property. This property can be used to highlight a specific cell in the table.
Example: The "Monday" cell is colored in light green with the "Tube" style.
Example
// Color the DAY cell of the current row
COL_Day[1].BackgroundColor = LightGreen
COL_Day[1].BackgroundStyle = styleTube

Remarks

How the BackgroundStyle property works

The BackgroundStyle property applies changes to cells, rows or columns only if the color of these elements has been set with the BackgroundColor property.
Using the hatches: The color of the hatches is defined by the Color property. By default, the color of the hatches corresponds to the color of the text. To use a different color for the text, call gPen.
Example:
TABLE_NoName1.Color = Black
TABLE_NoName1.BackgroundColor = LightYellow
FOR I = 1 TO 10
TableAddLine(MySelf)
TABLE_NoName1[I].BackgroundStyle = styleLeftDiagonalHatch
TABLE_NoName1.COL_NoName1[I] = gPen(LightRed) + "Row " + I
END

Limit

The BackgroundStyle property can only be used on cells, rows and columns of Table and TreeView Table controls.
