I'm looking for a way to stack my text in a column header. I've attached a picture of what it should look like... is there an easy way to accomplish this through the grid properties? Thanks in advance.

Hi Andy,

You can align the text one below the other in the column header by the following code below:

private void gridControl1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if ((e.ColIndex == 1) && (e.RowIndex == 0))
e.Style.Font.Italic = true;
e.Style.Font.Bold = true;
e.Style.Font.Size = 10;

e.Style.TextColor = Color.Red;
e.Style.FormattedText = " C" + Environment.NewLine + " o" + Environment.NewLine + "n " + Environment.NewLine + "t";

Please refer the sample in the link below which illustrates the above:


Please try running this and let me know if this helps.
