Is it possible to custom draw the column headers in a MultiColumnTreeView?

I'd like to try to get a look that is similiar to the glass-like column headers in a Vista-based ListView in details mode.

Ideally the Columns would have an image that can be replaced or allow being drawn by the user for custom effects....?

Hi Sam,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

It is possible to customize the appearence of the columns in MultiColumnTreeView control using ColumnStyles settings and ColumnHeaderBackground property. Please refer to the below online tutorial links that illustrates this:




Please let me know if any concerns.

I am aware of the Column Styles functions, but they do not seem to allow anything other than solid colors and two-color gradients. Duplication of the Vista glass-like columns consists of three colors at minimum in a controlled gradient OR an image used as a background. I can find no other examples of styles other that this.

The question remains: Is it possible to programmatically draw the column header backgrounds & text, or are we limited to using the 'styles' system?
