How to change the position of the FilterToggleButton and SortIcon in the header cell of the SfDataGrid?

Platform: UWP |
Control: SfDataGrid

In SfDataGrid, the AllowFiltering and AllowSorting properties allow you to perform filtering and sorting operations on data. You can define the AllowFiltering and AllowSorting properties either at the SfDataGrid or Column level.

By default, the FilterToggleButton and SortIcon appear at the right position of the Header. You can change this position to the left of the Header by customizing the ControlTemplate of the GridHeaderCellControl.

The following screenshot illustrates the default position of the FilterToggleButton and SortIcon in the GridHeaderCellControl.

You can change the above default position of the FilterToggleButton and SortIcon to the left of the Header as shown in the following code example.
