Hi Juraj,

You can achieve your requirement by setting HeaderToolTipTemplate for that particular column. Please refer the following code snippet


                <syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="Id">



                            <TextBlock Text="order id" TextWrapping="Wrap"/>






Please let us know if you require further assistance

Hi Abhishek, 
Thanks for using Syncfusion Products. 
We have checked the reported queries. Please find the details as following. 
# Header Tool tip same as Header Text  without tool tip template  
You can achieve your requirement by enabling ShowHeaderToolTip for column which shows header text as the tooltip without define the tool tip template. 
<syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="sfdatagrid"    
                        ItemsSource="{Binding YearlySalesDetails}" > 
        <syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="Name" HeaderText="Name of customer" ShowHeaderToolTip="True"/> 
You can refer the following user guide documentation to know about the tool tip for header cell. 
# Bind Property with Text block inside Header Tool tip template 
By default, DataContext of content loaded in the HeaderTootipTemplate will be associated GridColumn. You can bind any property of GridColumn to TextBlock loaded in the HeaderToolTipTemplate. 
<syncfusion:GridNumericColumn MappingName="QS2" HeaderText="Quarterly 2" ShowHeaderToolTip="True"> 
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding MappingName}"/> 
We have attached the sample for your reference and you can download the same from the following location. 
Please let us know if you would require further assistance.
