Hi, What is the way to override painting for the headers, including my own drawings of the background and the interior? Here are my codes: protected override void OnDrawCell(GridDrawCellEventArgs e) { if (e.RowIndex == 0) { MyDrawBackgroundMethod(...); MyDrawInteriorMethod(...); } else { base.OnDrawCell(e); } } This is ok for RowIndex > 0 but not for the header cells. I have already set this.BaseStyleMap["Header"].StyleInfo.CellType = "Static". What else should I do to take over the header painting? Thanks for helping again. Aaron

After doing your header drawing, set e.Cancel = true to tell the grid not to continue with its default drawing.

FYI - In 1.6 there is also a new DrawCellBackground event that should also help with this. Stefan

Thanks for both your comments. 1.6 is still not available in the download. Is there an ETA? We can't wait to get our hands on it. Thanks again guys.
