How to change the Title and Watermark text in Column Chooser Window?

In SfDataGrid, Column Chooser window allows you to add or remove columns dynamically from the current view of grid by drag-and-drop operations. Please refer here to know more about Column Chooser.

By default, Title (ColumnChooser) and WaterMarkText (No Fields Available) of ColumnChooserWindow will be displayed like in below image.

In SfDataGrid, it is possible to change the above Title and WaterMarkText by using the Title and WaterMarkText property of column chooser window as shown in the below code snippet,

Code Snippet:

this.AssociatedObject.Loaded += OnAssociatedObjectLoaded;
ViewModel viewModel;
void OnAssociatedObjectLoaded(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
            viewModel = (this.AssociatedObject.DataContext) as ViewModel;
            viewModel.ColumnChooserCommand = new DelegateCommand<object>(ColumnChooserCommandHandler);
void InitializeColumnChooserPopup()
            chooserWindow = new ColumnChooser(this.AssociatedObject.dataGrid);
            chooserWindow.Title = "Column Picker";
            chooserWindow.WaterMarkText = "No columns Available";
            chooserWindow.Foreground = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.BlueViolet);
            chooserWindow.Background = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Pink);
            chooserWindow.TitleBarForeground = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.White);
            chooserWindow.TitleBarBackground = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.BlueViolet);       
            this.AssociatedObject.dataGrid.GridColumnDragDropController = new GridColumnChooserController(this.AssociatedObject.dataGrid, chooserWindow);
