How do I include an icon in the column header of the GridControl and GridDataBoundGrid?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

When you use the ImageIndex and ImageList properties to set the icons, these properties only works for the TextBox and Static cells. So, make your header cell as static and then set your ImageIndex. For the DataBoundGrid, you have to use the PrepareViewStyleInfo to set these properties.








Refer to the following code example for setting the image in the header of the GridDataBoundGrid by using PrepareViewStyleInfo .




The following screenshots display the images in the header of the GridControl and GridDataBoundGrid.
