property Items.CellForeColor([Item as Variant], [ColIndex as Variant]) as Color

Retrieves or sets the cell's foreground color.

 TypeDescription 
   Item as Variant A long expression that indicates the item's handle.  
   ColIndex as Variant A long expression that indicates the cell's handle or the column's index, a string expression that indicates the column's caption or the column's key.  
   Color A color expression that indicates the cell's foreground color  
The CellForeColor property identifies the cell's foreground color. Use the ClearCellForeColor property to clear the cell's foreground color. Use the ItemForeColor property to specify the the item's foreground color. Use the Def(exCellForeColor) property to specify the foreground color for all cells in the column. Use the ConditionalFormats method to apply formats to a cell or range of cells, and have that formatting change depending on the value of the cell or the value of a formula.

For instance, the following VB code changes the left top cell of your control: Grid1.Items.CellForeColor(Grid1.Items(0), 0) = vbBlue 

In VB.NET or C# you require the following functions until the .NET framework will provide:

You can use the following VB.NET function:
     Shared Function ToUInt32(ByVal c As Color) As UInt32
         Dim i As Long
	 i = c.R
	 i = i + 256 * c.G
	 i = i + 256 * 256 * c.B
	 ToUInt32 = Convert.ToUInt32(i)
     End Function 
You can use the following C# function:
private UInt32 ToUInt32(Color c)
{
	long i;
	i = c.R;
	i = i + 256 * c.G;
	i = i + 256 * 256 * c.B;
	return Convert.ToUInt32(i);
}

The following VB sample changes the foreground color for the focused cell:

With Grid1.Items
    .CellForeColor(.FocusItem, Grid1.FocusColumnIndex) = vbRed
End With

The following C# sample changes the foreground color for the focused cell:

axGrid1.Items.set_CellForeColor(axGrid1.Items.FocusItem, axGrid1.FocusColumnIndex, ToUInt32(Color.Red));

The following VB.NET sample changes the foreground color for the focused cell:

With AxGrid1.Items
    .CellForeColor(.FocusItem, AxGrid1.FocusColumnIndex) = ToUInt32(Color.Red)
End With

The following C++ sample changes the foreground color for the focused cell:

#include "Items.h"
CItems items = m_grid.GetItems();
items.SetCellForeColor( COleVariant( items.GetFocusItem() ), COleVariant( (long)m_grid.GetFocusColumnIndex() ), RGB(255,0,0) );

The following VFP sample changes the foreground color for the focused cell:

with thisform.Grid1.Items
	.DefaultItem = .FocusItem
	.CellForeColor( 0, thisform.Grid1.FocusColumnIndex ) = RGB(255,0,0)
endwith 

Note: The intersection of an item with a column defines a cell. Each cell is uniquely represented by its handle. The cell's handle is of HCELL type, that's equivalent with a long type. All properties of Items object that have two parameters Item and ColIndex, refer a cell.

The following lines are equivalents and each of them changes the bold font attribute of the first cell on the first item.

With Grid1
    .Items.CellBold(, .Items.ItemCell(.Items(0), 0)) = True
    .Items.CellBold(.Items(0), 0) = True
    .Items.CellBold(.Items(0)) = True
    .Items.CellBold(.Items.ItemByIndex(0)) = True
    .Items.CellBold(.Items.ItemByIndex(0), 0) = True
    .Items.CellBold(.Items(0), Grid1.Columns(0).Caption) = True
End With
