Align the column headers


it's no problem to align to content of a cell. But how is it possible to align each column header text (left or right, not centering)?
I am using the latest api and vb.net.

Hi Wolfgang, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products. 

How is it possible to align each column header text (left or right, not centering)? 
Suggestion 1: 
In order to align the header text at right/left/center side of the cell, HorizontalAlignment property of GridGroupingControl.Appearance.ColumnHeaderCell can be used.  
Code example: 
Me.gridGroupingControl1.Appearance.ColumnHeaderCell.HorizontalAlignment = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridHorizontalAlignment.Right 

Suggestion 2: 
The header text can be aligned by using HorizontalAlignment property in QueryCellStyleInfo event also. 
Code example: 
AddHandler Me.gridGroupingControl1.QueryCellStyleInfo, AddressOf gridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo 
Private Sub gridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs) 
                If e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind = Syncfusion.Grouping.DisplayElementKind.ColumnHeader Then 
                                e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridHorizontalAlignment.Right 
                End If 
End Sub
