The demo on how to color the alternating rows of an exported Grid to Excel uses the
background option of the cell to set the background color of the alternating rows.
To see the example, refer to the project on coloring alternating rows.
These projects require a UI for ASP.NET MVC 2014.3.1125 version or later. Earlier versions do not expose the
ExcelExportevent through the fluent API.
