XAML Values

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The object to use for the column header. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Identifier field

HeaderProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The Header property can be set to an object that is as simple as a string, or to an object that is as complex as a StackPanel that has embedded content. The default column header in a GridView view mode is styled as a button that is derived from ButtonBase and that has the content of the Header property as its child. To specify a template for the column header, see the HeaderTemplate or HeaderTemplateSelector property descriptions.

Properties that define the content, layout, and style of a column header are found on many related classes, and some of these properties have functionality that is similar or the same. For more information, see GridView Column Header Styles and Templates Overview.

Example
