Hi Ranjan,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.


If you want to change the header style of row and column in a grid at run time, you can use the “StyleInfo” property. By using this property you can set the header appearance of a grid. Please refer the below code,




private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


       this.gridControl1.BaseStylesMap["Header"].StyleInfo.BackColor = Color.SkyBlue;

   this.gridControl1.BaseStylesMap["Row Header"].StyleInfo.BackColor = Color.SkyBlue;




Please let me know if you have any concerns.
