Hi Jb,


Thank you for using Syncfusion product.

Currently, we don’t have support to rotate the text in PdfGrid row cell. We have logged this feature in our database. We will let  you know  , once we have implemented this feature .


Please let us know if you have any further assistance .

Hi  Anders, 

At present, we do not have any immediate plan to implement this feature “Need to add support for rotate the text in PdfGrid row cell”. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity.

any update for this ???
I have seen the last reply was for 2017
wondering if new released can help me ?
if yes
would you mind to let me know if there is any chance to rotate cell text in pdfgrid  with our using Graphics.RotateTransform
I have following code::

for (int j = 0; j < dsourceII.Rows.Count; j++)
                    Main2dGrid.Headers[0].Cells[j+1].Value = dsourceII.Rows[j][1].ToString();
            Main2dGrid.Headers[0].Cells[0].Value = "";
           Main2dGrid.Headers[0].Cells[Main2dGrid.Columns.Count-1].Value = "";
            foreach (PdfGridCell Cell in Main2dGrid.Headers[0].Cells)
               /// here  I need to rotate all the cell value in Header[0] but not my grid

                Cell.StringFormat = STRINGformatRight;
                Cell.Style.Font = Tahoma;
                Cell.Style.Borders.All = PENWhite;

Hi Farnaz,  
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.  
On our further analysis, we can able to draw the rotated text in the PDF grid cell using BeginCellLayout event in our PDF library. Please refer the below KB documentation for more details,  
Please let us know if you need any further assistance with this.
