Customize the appearance of the grid

In order to change the appearance of the grid cells, the Font property can be used to set the desired style values. The text color and orientation of the text can be set by using the TextColor and Orientation properties of the Font property.

C#

//Changes the font properties of the header cell.
gridControl1[3, 3].Font.Italic = true;
gridControl1[3, 3].Font.Bold = true;
gridControl1[3, 3].Font.Orientation = 270;
 
//Changes the Text Color and Text of the header cell. 
gridControl1[3, 3].TextColor = Color.Red;
gridControl1[3, 3].Text = "Sample";

 

VB

'Changes the font properties of the header cell.
gridControl1(3, 3).Font.Italic = True
gridControl1(3, 3).Font.Bold = True
gridControl1(3, 3).Font.Orientation = 270
 
'Changes the Text Color and Text of the header cell. 
gridControl1(3, 3).TextColor = Color.Red
gridControl1(3, 3).Text = "Sample"
