Align the header text

To change the header text alignment of the GridListControl, any of the following methods can be used.

  1. Using QueryCellInfo event
  2. Using BaseStylesMap property

Using QueryCellInfo event

The HorizontalAlignment property can be used via QueryCellInfo event to change the header text alignment.


//Triggering the event.
this.gridListControl1.Grid.QueryCellInfo += new GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(Grid_QueryCellInfo); 
//Handling the event.
void Grid_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
    //you can check any of the column headers. 
    if (e.RowIndex == 0 && e.ColIndex == 1)
        //Set the header alignment 
        e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left;


'Triggering the event.
Private Me.gridListControl1.Grid.QueryCellInfo += New GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(AddressOf Grid_QueryCellInfo)
'Handling the event.
Private Sub Grid_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
    'you can check any of the column headers. 
    If e.RowIndex = 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex = 1 Then
        'Set the header alignment 
        e.Style.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left
    End If
End Sub

Using BaseStyleMap property

The HorizontalAlignment property can be used via the BaseStyleMap. For more information about BaseStyleMap refer this article.


//Using BaseStyleMap to change header alignment.
this.gridListControl1.Grid.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left;



'Using BaseStyleMap to change header alignment.
Me.gridListControl1.Grid.BaseStylesMap("Column Header").StyleInfo.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left
