DataGrid.HeaderStyle Property

Gets the style properties of the heading section in the DataGrid control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public virtual TableItemStyle HeaderStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle
A TableItemStyle object that contains the style properties of the heading section in the DataGrid control. The default value is an empty TableItemStyle object.

Use this property to provide a custom style for the heading section of the DataGrid control. Common style attributes that can be adjusted include forecolor, backcolor, font, and content alignment within the cell. Providing a different style enhances the appearance of the DataGrid control.

The HeaderStyle property of the DataGrid control inherits the style settings of the ControlStyle property. For example, if you specify a red font for the ControlStyle property, the HeaderStyle property will also have a red font. This allows you to provide a common appearance for the control by setting a single style property. You can override the inherited style settings by setting the HeaderStyle property. For example, you can specify a blue font for the HeaderStyle property, overriding the red font specified in the ControlStyle property.

To specify a custom style for the heading section, place the <HeaderStyle> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DataGrid control. You can then list the style attributes within the opening <HeaderStyle> tag.

NoteNote

The ShowHeader property must be set to true for this property to be visible.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HeaderStyle property to set the background color of the heading section.
