Some Additional information.. I am using SyncFusion 3.1 and this grid is binded with a typed dataset.

Using the BaseStyleMap should work (unless something is resetting it later say in PrepareViewStyleInfo or Model.QueryCellInfo). this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.Font.Italic = true;

So its a bug.. if i change the font using the property window.. the changes don''t get applied ( i don''t see code generated in initializecomponentmethod )...but it works if i explicitly add the following code in initializecomponent() this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.Font.Facename = "Tahoma"; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.Font.Size = 12; Regards Yogi

Using 3010, if I open up the DataBoundSortByDisplayMember sample, and make the changes you mentioned to the BaseStylesMap in the designer, I see the font change on the design surface, and it stays changed at runtime as well. If you try to change the font in this DataBoundSortByDisplayMember sample, does it change for you. If so, there must be something particular to your project that is triggerring this problem. Can you upload a sample project that fails so we can try to spot the problem so it can be addressed?
