The ColumnHeaderContainerStyle property and the ColumnHeaderTemplate property are both used to define the visual tree for the GridViewColumnHeader objects that represent the column headers in a GridView. The ColumnHeaderContainerStyle property can also define column header content when a ColumnHeaderTemplate is not by specified by defining a ControlTemplate for the GridViewColumnHeader object.

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.

When you set styles, there are some restrictions. For more information, see Styling and Templating.

The following example shows how to define the ColumnHeaderContainerStyle property.

<Style x:Key="myHeaderStyle" TargetType="{x:Type GridViewColumnHeader}">
  <Setter Property="Background" Value="LightBlue"/>
</Style>
<GridView ColumnHeaderTemplate="{StaticResource myHeaderTemplate}"
          ColumnHeaderContainerStyle="{StaticResource myHeaderStyle}">
  <GridViewColumn Header="Year" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateYear}"/>
  <GridViewColumn Header="Month" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateMonth}"/>
  <GridViewColumn Header="Day" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateDay}"/>
</GridView>
