The GroupFooterRowStyleSelector property of RadGridView can be used to style group footer rows differently based on a specific condition.

Bear in mind that the GroupFooterRowStyle takes precedence over the GroupFooterRowStyleSelector and will overwrite it if both are defined simultaneously.

To do so, first create a new class that inherits the StyleSelector class and override its SelectStyle method:

Example 1: The GroupFooterRowStyleSelector class

public class GroupFooterRowStyleSelector : StyleSelector
    public override Style SelectStyle(object item, DependencyObject container)
        var group = item as CollectionViewGroup;

        if (group != null)
            if (group.ItemCount > 1)
                return BigGroupStyle;
                return SmallGroupStyle;

        return null;

    public Style BigGroupStyle { get; set; }
    public Style SmallGroupStyle { get; set; }
Public Class GroupFooterRowStyleSelector
Inherits StyleSelector
    Public Overrides Function SelectStyle(item As Object, container As DependencyObject) As Style
        Dim group = TryCast(item, CollectionViewGroup)

        If group IsNot Nothing Then
            If group.ItemCount > 1 Then
                Return BigGroupStyle
                Return SmallGroupStyle
            End If
        End If

        Return Nothing
    End Function

    Public Property BigGroupStyle() As Style
            Return m_BigGroupStyle
        End Get
            m_BigGroupStyle = Value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private m_BigGroupStyle As Style

    Public Property SmallGroupStyle() As Style
            Return m_SmallGroupStyle
        End Get
            m_SmallGroupStyle = Value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private m_SmallGroupStyle As Style
End Class

In the XAML file, define the style selector as a resource and set the properties of the BigGroupStyle and SmallGroupStyle:

Example 2: Setting the BigGroupStyle and SmallGroupStyle

    <my:GroupFooterRowStyleSelector x:Key="StadiumCapacityStyleSelector">
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewGroupFooterRow">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red"/>
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewGroupFooterRow">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="Yellow" />

The "my:" prefix before GroupFooterRowStyleSelector specifies the mapping for the namespace of the project: xmlns:my="..."

Finally, set the GroupFooterRowStyleSelector property:

Example 3: Setting the GroupFooterRowStyleSelector property

<telerik:RadGridView GroupFooterRowStyleSelector="{StaticResource GroupFooterRowStyleSelector}" />

And here is the final result:
