How to display the long text in header cells as viewable?

By default, the cell value will be displayed as per the data that we provided to the grid. In this case, if the particular column has the data with minimum length i.e. 3 to 4 characters and header text as long, the column will be resized as per the header text length.


In order to display the column header text fully and resize the column based on the data, the Orientation property can be used to display the header text as vertically.
