To align a column header for a particular column, you can set: grid[0, colIndex].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left; More generally, you can loop through the column styles and set the style o fthe header cell to match the style of the column.
//in a gridcontrol
for(int i = 1; i <= grid.ColCount; ++i)
    grid[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = grid.ColStyles[i].HorizontalAlignment;

//in a griddataboundgrid
//if you have not added GridBoundColumns
for(int i = 1; i <= grid.Model.ColCount; ++i)
    grid[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = grid.Binder.InternalColumns[i-1].HorizontalAlignment; 

//in a griddataboundgrid
//if you have added GridBoundColumns
for(int i = 1; i <= grid.Model.ColCount; ++i)
    grid[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = grid.GridBoundColumns[i-1].HorizontalAlignment;

It not work with the following codes: switch (fieldInfo.Align) { case "0": this.dgrQueryResults[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left; dgrQueryResults.Model.ColStyles[header].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left; break; case "1": this.dgrQueryResults[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right; dgrQueryResults.Model.ColStyles[header].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right; break; case "2": this.dgrQueryResults[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Center; dgrQueryResults.Model.ColStyles[header].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Center; break; } Please help!

Are you using a GridControl? Or a GridDataBoundGrid? As shown in the previous snippets, you do not use ColStyles with a GridDataBoundGrid. Instead, you use the StyleInfo object from the appropriate GridBoundColumn collection.

- I am using GridDataBoundGrid - It still work when I use ColStyles[header]: dgrQueryResults.Model.ColStyles[header].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right; - However, this command did not work: this.dgrQueryResults[0, i].HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Right; Please help!

I am sorry. You do have to do something special to align header text on a cell by cell basis in a GridDataBoundGrid. You will need to do this in either grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo or in grid.Model.QueryCellInfo. Here is a sample using the PrepareViewStyleInfo event. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GDBG_Align_cce59b9a.zip
