In the following code, I want to rotate headertext of both columns.
I followed documentations but I am missing something.
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Navigations
@using TestWithFilterableComboBox.ViewModels
@model TestWithFilterableComboBox.ViewModels.ReportViewModel
@using (Html.BeginForm())
{
JobNameQueuedLineNo
@Html.DropDownListFor(x => x.JobName, new SelectList(Model.Jobs, "Value", "Text"), "Job", new { style = "width: 450px;" }) @Html.DropDownListFor(x => x.QueuedBeamStatus, new SelectList(Model.Queues, "Value", "Text"), "Queue", new { style = "width: 450px;" }) @Html.DropDownListFor(x => x.LineName, new SelectList(Model.Lines, "Value", "Text"), "Line", new { style = "width: 450px;" })



@(Html.EJS().Grid("TestGrid").DataSource(Model.Report).Columns(col =>
{
col.Field("Workorderid").HeaderText("Work Order Id").Width(150).Add();
col.Field("FullFilename").HeaderText("Full File Name").Add();
}).AllowPaging(true).PageSettings(o => o.PageSize(10)).AllowSorting().AllowExcelExport().Toolbar(new List() { "Print", "Search", "ExcelExport", "PdfExport" }).Render())
}

Hi Fred, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

We have prepared a sample (by using our documentation solution) to rotate the particular column headerText to 90 degrees. But we did not face any issue while using this solution. So, we have attached our sample in the below link for your reference, 


In this sample we have used transform property to rotate the headerText. After that we have applied this new style to a particular column by using customAttributes property of the Grid. Please refer the below code snippet, 

@Html.EJS().Grid("Grid").DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.datasource).Height("240").Columns(col => 
{= 
   col.Field("ShipCity").HeaderText("Ship City").CustomAttributes(new { @class = "orientationcss" }).Width("80").Add(); 
}).Created("setHeaderHeight").Render() 
 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function setHeaderHeight(args) { 
        var textWidth = document.querySelector(".orientationcss > div").scrollWidth; // obtain the width of the headerText content. 
        var headerCell = document.querySelectorAll(".e-headercell"); 
        for (var i = 0; i < headerCell.length; i++) { 
            (headerCell.item(i)).style.height = textWidth + 'px'; // assign the obtained textWidth as the height of the headerCell. 
        } 
    } 
</script> 
 
<style> 
    .orientationcss .e-headercelldiv { 
        transform: rotate(90deg); 
    } 
    .e-grid .e-headercelldiv { 
        margin: 108px; 
    } 
</style> 

Note: After changed the orientation you must need to change the Grid header cells height based on the new orientation. In the above code we have used Grid created event to change the header cells height.

it kinda works, but now the problem i see is that i need to resize the column manually for it to be wide enough to see all the text

As you can see, first image all text is cropped, and as i widen the column it appears.. but its obvisouly not what i need as some columns will need to be tight

Hi Fred, 

In our previous update, we have provided a workaround to change the headerText orientation to 90 degrees for Grid header cell. In this workaround, we have overridden the default Grid header cell margin based on the header cell height. But while perform resizing, the header cell height did not change. In this case, we are unable to calculate the margin values. So, it is not feasible to use headerText orientation workaround with resizing feature.

I do not need resizing, i was just pointing out that the only way to see the text was to resize wider.

The example you gave me does not work as the text, while it is rotated, its like its position and size is not correct until i resize

Can you give me an example where it works for different kind of column width.

Thanks

Hi Fred, 

By default, the Grid header text will adapt in the header cell based on that particular column width. So, we suggest you to increase the column width or enable to allowTextWarp property in Grid to show the full header text. Please refer the below screenshots, 

After enabling the allowTextWrap the Grid will look like, 

 

After increasing the column width the Grid will look like, 

 

Documentation for allowTextWrap property,

I am starting to fell like we are running in circle here

What I need are columns that are not too wide in which the header text is rotated 90 degrees.  the header will be taller to fit the entire header text, but the width of each column will be minimal.

Is that something that Syncfusion grid can do.

Hi Fred, 

We have analyzed the sample and found that newly applied margin is caused this issue. So, we suggest you to apply the text-align as center instead of this margin to resolve this issue. Please refer the below code snippet, 

<style> 
    .orientationcss .e-headercelldiv { 
        transform: rotate(90deg); 
    } 
 
    .orientationcss .e-headercelldiv { 
        text-align: center; 
    } 
</style>

We have modified our sample with this solution and you can find that sample from the below link,
