Unable to view selected rows in a grid

How do I highlight selected rows in a grid? I know they're selected when I try to export the rows, but I cannot view the rows which are selected when viewing the grid. Sorry for the basic question.

Ah I guess you have alternating row backgrounds enabled because the 5th row is gray as well. This makes it indeed difficult to distinguish selected rows. If you disable that alternating color, selected rows should be more visible.

I tried your suggestion, but it still didn't help. I still can't see selected rows.

So how does it look like without alternating row backgrounds?

I still can't see the selected rows. In the attached picture, 12 rows in the middle of the grid were selected. I tried restoring the defaults, but still no change.

I can see these 12 rows clearly in your screenshot.

You could tell your screen to show more or less contrast or brightness.

Duh!  Brightness was set too high.  Sorry for the idiocy.

BTW:  Heidisql is wonderful - I use it every day.  Many thanks for your work on this.

More contrast for background color of selected grid rows. See https://www.heidisql.com/forum.php?t=36889

Ah no problem, glad we solved that. Indeed the selection background was quite bright, so I just made it slightly darker, for the next build.
