Hello, everybody.

I need to force the text of the elements in a ComboBox style cell, when it is popped up, to be left aligned.

I've tried TextAlign property of the Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell GridStyleInfo, but it doesn't work to me. The always appear right aligned.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi José,

Please set the HorizontalAlignment property to control the behavior of horizontal text alignment in a combobox cell.

this.grid.TableDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell. HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left;

Best regards,

as I can put the header of a column in a vertical position, I tried this way and do not get


(e.Style.CellType = "ColumnHeaderCell" And e.Style.Text = "Drafting") Then

e.Style.Font.Orientation = 90

   end if

Hi edgar,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.



Vertical text align

There are couple of ways to set the Column Header Text Alignment:








private void grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender,

Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)


if((e.ColIndex==1) && (e.RowIndex==0))









If you use BaseStylesMap, it will work for the whole header column. But to make changes to individual cell you need to handle PrepareViewStyleInfo event


We have provided the solution based on your last update. We hope this will helps to you. If this didn’t helps to you please provide any simple sample which is you have used in to reproduce and some more details. We will provide an exact support quickly.
