How to assign Column names to the Grid Controls, besides the normally assigned numbered headers?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

The column header text and row header text are generated by default in the design time itself. Those header text can be changed manually through the following options,

Method 1: Using QueryCellInfo

 The column header text can be changed based on row and column index,


void gridControl2_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
    // //Column Name for Grid Control2
    if (e.RowIndex == 0 && e.ColIndex > 0)
        e.Style.Text = "Trial" + " " +  e.ColIndex.ToString();



Private Sub gridControl2_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
 'Column Name for Grid Control2
 If e.RowIndex = 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex > 0 Then
  e.Style.Text = "Trial" & " " & e.ColIndex.ToString()
 End If
End Sub


Showing changed column header text

Method 2: Using BaseStylesMap

The column header text changed based on column header base style.


//Column Name for Grid Control1
gridControl1.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.Text = "Test";



'Column Name for Grid Control1
gridControl1.BaseStylesMap("Column Header").StyleInfo.Text = "Test"
