DataList.HeaderStyle Property

Gets the style properties for the heading section of the DataList control.

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

public virtual TableItemStyle HeaderStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public TableItemStyle get_HeaderStyle ()

public function get HeaderStyle () : TableItemStyle

Not applicable.

Property Value

A TableItemStyle object that contains the style properties for the heading section of the DataList control. The default value is an empty TableItemStyle object.

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

To specify a custom style for the heading section, place the <HeaderStyle> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DataList 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 specify a custom background color for the heading section of the DataList control.

NoteNote:

The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
