How to better show filtered columns to the user ?


Is it possible in SfDataGrid to dinamically change the header background color of a column as soon as this column becomes filtered so that it is more evident to the user ?

Hi Silvio,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have analyzed your requirement. You can change the column header background when applying filter to that column by using SfDataGrid.FilterChanged event as shown below,

Code Example:
this.datagrid.FilterChanged += datagrid_FilterChanged;  

void datagrid_FilterChanged(object sender, GridFilterEventArgs e)


            if (e.FilterPredicates != null && e.FilterPredicates.Count > 0)

                e.Column.HeaderStyle = App.Current.FindResource("headerStyle") as Style;


                e.Column.HeaderStyle = new Style();        

<Style x:Key="headerStyle" TargetType="Syncfusion:GridHeaderCellControl">

            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Green" />


We have prepared a sample for your requirement and please find the sample from the following location,
