How do I change the column header text in GridDataBoundGrid?


The GridDataBoundGrid defaults to using the property name of the content of the columns as the header text. For a DataTable, this is the DataColumn.ColumnName property.

To specify a header other than this default, you have to set the GridBoundColumn.HeaderText property for the column. If you have explicitly added GridBoundColumns to the GridDataBouondGrid.GridBoundColumns collection, then you would use the GridBoundColumns in that collection. If you did not add GridBoundColumns, then you would use the GridBoundColumns that are autogenerated when you set the DataSource to the grid, GridDataBoundGrid.Binder.InternalColumns.


//set the Header Text of Column 1

this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns[0].HeaderText="New ColumnName";


'set the Header Text of Column 1

Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns(0).HeaderText="New ColumnName"
