XAML Values

ResourceExtension

One of the following: StaticResource, or DynamicResource. See Resources Overview.

DataTemplateSelectorClassKey

The key that identifies the selector implementation being requested. The key refers to a derived class that implements a practical SelectTemplate override. For information about how to map your custom class, see XAML Namespaces and Namespace Mapping. You can also programmatically add an instance of your DataTemplateSelector class as a resource to the application resource dictionary.

MyDataTemplateSelectorImplementation

A class derived from DataTemplateSelector that implements a practical SelectTemplate override. For information about how to map your custom class, see XAML Namespaces and Namespace Mapping.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Controls.DataTemplateSelector
The DataTemplateSelector object that determines the data template to use for each column header. The default value is null.

Identifier field

ColumnHeaderTemplateSelectorProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

If you do not set this property, the default logic is to use the ColumnHeaderTemplate property for all columns if it is defined.

If the ColumnHeaderTemplate property and the ColumnHeaderTemplateSelector property are both set, the ColumnHeaderTemplate property takes precedence.

This property represents one of several ways to lay out and style column headers. For more information, see GridView Column Header Styles and Templates Overview.
