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

Bear in mind that the GroupFooterCellStyle takes precedence over the GroupFooterCellStyleSelector 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 GroupFooterCellStyleSelector class

public class GroupFooterCellStyleSelector : StyleSelector
    public override Style SelectStyle(object item, DependencyObject container)
        var cell = container as GridViewGroupFooterCell;
        var footerRow = cell.ParentRow as GridViewGroupFooterRow;
        var group = footerRow.Group as QueryableCollectionViewGroup;

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

    public Style BigGroupStyle { get; set; }
    public Style SmallGroupStyle { get; set; }
Public Class GroupFooterCellStyleSelector
    Inherits StyleSelector

    Public Overrides Function SelectStyle(ByVal item As Object, ByVal container As DependencyObject) As Style
        Dim cell = TryCast(container, GridViewGroupFooterCell)
        Dim footerRow = TryCast(cell.ParentRow, GridViewGroupFooterRow)
        Dim group = TryCast(footerRow.Group, QueryableCollectionViewGroup)

        If group.ItemCount > 1 Then
            Return BigGroupStyle
            Return SmallGroupStyle
        End If
    End Function

    Public Property BigGroupStyle() As Style
    Public Property 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:GroupFooterCellStyleSelector x:Key="GroupFooterCellStyleSelector">
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewGroupFooterCell">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red"/>
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewGroupFooterCell">
                <Setter Property="Background" Value="Yellow" />

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

Finally, set the GroupFooterCellStyleSelector property of the chosen column:

Example 3: Setting the GroupFooterCellStyleSelector property

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}" GroupFooterCellStyleSelector="{StaticResource GroupFooterCellStyleSelector}" />

Figure 1 shows the final result:
