DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs.Header Property

 

Gets the ColumnHeader representing the column header to draw.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public ColumnHeader Header { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ColumnHeader

The ColumnHeader representing the column header.

This property is useful when the State property does not provide adequate information to meet your needs. The State property provides only basic state information that you can use, for example, to determine whether the mouse is over the column header. The Header property, on the other hand, allows you to access all members of the ColumnHeader representing the header.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Header property in an application that provides custom drawing for a ListView control.

For the complete example, see the DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs overview reference topic.

// Draws column headers.
private void listView1_DrawColumnHeader(object sender,
    DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs e)
{
    using (StringFormat sf = new StringFormat())
    {
        // Store the column text alignment, letting it default
        // to Left if it has not been set to Center or Right.
        switch (e.Header.TextAlign)
        {
            case HorizontalAlignment.Center:
                sf.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
                break;
            case HorizontalAlignment.Right:
                sf.Alignment = StringAlignment.Far;
                break;
        }

        // Draw the standard header background.
        e.DrawBackground();

        // Draw the header text.
        using (Font headerFont =
                    new Font("Helvetica", 10, FontStyle.Bold))
        {
            e.Graphics.DrawString(e.Header.Text, headerFont,
                Brushes.Black, e.Bounds, sf);
        }
    }
    return;
}
