# Conditional formatting
Conditional formatting can be used to set the font, color, typeface, etc., for cell content and can also be used to format the style of a cell, all based on a predefined set of criteria.
# Example of conditional formatting
This demo shows how to use the cell type renderer feature to make some conditional formatting:
- The first row is read-only and formatted as bold green text.
- All cells in the Nissan column are formatted as italic text.
- Empty cells are formatted with a silver background.
- Negative numbers are formatted as red text.
