When I drag a ggc on a form, the default column header style used to resemble that of the windows listview, with a white background and which hightlight the bottom border with yellow when the mouse is over the header.

I am using 4.4 and the column header of the ggc seems to be taking the default color of the windows form background, which is 'Color.Control'.

I have tried unsuccessfully to change the header style (background color) thru code and the column header of the ggc continues to have this silver background!

Hi James,

Before Changing the Backcolor of the header cell, you need to change the Themed property of the Header cell to false. Here is a code snippet.

this.grid.TableDescriptor.Appearance.AnyHeaderCell.Themed = false;
this.grid.TableDescriptor.Appearance.AnyHeaderCell.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue;

Best Regards,
