v2.0 - Coloring cells based upon column data

I used the following code in v1.0. I cannot seem to find the 2.0 equivalent. Can sombody help me ?

mygrid.getColumnTemplate(6).setStyle("background-color", priorityBG);
var  priorityBG = function() {
        var priority = this.getItemProperty("text") + "";
        if(priority == "STAT")      return "#f39f96";
        else return this.getProperty("row/order") % 2 ? "#EEEEEE" : "white"; 
}

The main problem I am having is finding the function that replaces getColumnTemplate since that function is no longer valid.

mygrid.getCellTemplate(6).setStyle("background-color", priorityBG);

var priorityBG = function () {
        var row = mygrid.getCurrentRow();
        var priority = mygrid.getCellText(6,row) + ""
        if(priority == "STAT")      {
            return "red";
        }
        else return "green";
}

So far I have the above code but every row is getting colored red. I'm semi close but still new to the AW library. Any how would be greatly appreciated. I have been browsing the forums but haven't found the exact answer yet. My dataset is being populated via XML.

Alright I'm slowly answering my own questions. I have everything working and only have a few questions left. I am using the following code to color a single cell based upon its value:
var row = mygrid.getCurrentRow();
mygrid.getCellTemplate(6, row).setStyle("background-color", priorityBG);

var priorityBG = function() {
        var row = mygrid.getCurrentRow();
        //var row = this.getSelectionProperty("index");
        var priority = mygrid.getCellText(6,row) + ""
        // alert("Priority:"+priority);
        if(priority == "STAT")      {
            return "#f39f96";
        }
        else return row % 2 ? "#eeeeee" : "white"; 
}


I use the following code to handle my highlighted selection:
<style>
.aw-cells-selected,.aw-rows-selected, .aw-item-ruler {
    color: black!important;
    background-color: #ffe360!important;
}
</style>


Unfortunately the selection highlight doesn't apply to the cell I've recolored via the priorityBG function. Am I missing a CSS definition ? Do I need to handle my recolor differently to make this happen okay ? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for a wonderful codebase to work with.

I need to have the row selection color override any column color that I have set using getCellTemplate().setStyle("background-color","#....").

I accomplished this using !important in css. However, I only want this behavior to occur when I click on the row selector. Otherwise, I want the getCellTemplate color to override.

Is there a way to modify the code such that if I set a variable to true, the !important behavior takes precedence and if I set it to false, it would act as if the !important rule is not set?

The other option I have is to programmatically de-select rows with the following code:

this.setRowSelected(false);
this.setRowState("");
this.setSelectedRows([]);

However, I don't want to do obj.refresh() and it appears I need to do the refresh.
