'Declaration
Public Overrides Property HeaderText As String

Property Value

Type: System.String
The text that is displayed in the header of the data-bound control that contains the DynamicField object.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The DynamicField object is inside a data-bound control that is not bound to a data source control that implements the IDynamicDataSource interface.

Use the HeaderText property to identify a field in a data-bound control with a friendly name. The most common application of the HeaderText property is to provide meaningful column names to data fields in a GridView or DetailsView control.

By default, the HeaderText property uses the display name set for the data field by using the DisplayNameAttribute attribute. If the display name is not set, the HeaderText property uses the value of the DataField property.
