I am trying to format a string for my column header to be displayed. There are some situations where I will need to append empty spaces to get the text to align. I've noticed that when I finally display the grid, the text is not aligned.

I should also note that I have centered the horizontal text alignment. How can I have both the white space and the centered text? Is there a way I can allow padded text to appear the way it should be under this condition?

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Th string of the header cell text can be formatted and changed using a property called HeaderText of specifying the particular column from the collection

Please refer the code below:
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns[1].HeaderText = "Text";

Let me know if you have any queries.
