FormView.HeaderRow Property

Gets the FormViewRow object that represents the header row in a FormView control.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual FormViewRow HeaderRow { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormViewRow
A FormViewRow that represents the header row in a FormView control.

The header row is displayed at the top of the FormView control when the HeaderText or HeaderTemplate property is set. Use the HeaderRow property to programmatically access the FormViewRow object that represents the header row.

NoteNote

The HeaderRow property is available only after the FormView control creates the header row in the ItemCreated event.

This property is commonly used when you need to programmatically manipulate the header row, for example, when adding custom content. Any modification to the HeaderRow property must be performed after the FormView control has been rendered; otherwise, the FormView control overwrites any changes.

The following example demonstrates how to use the HeaderRow property to programmatically modify the properties of the header row during the ItemCreated event.
