1 min read

SfDataGrid allows you to set different background color for each column header by using the GridColumn.HeaderTemplate property.

The below code illustrates how to set the different background color for each column header.

<ContentPage.Content>
  <syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name ="dataGrid"
                         ColumnSizer="Star"
                         AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                         ItemsSource="{Binding OrdersInfo}"> 
    
    <syncfusion:SfDataGrid.Columns> 
      <syncfusion:GridTextColumn  MappingName="OrderID">
         <syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
            <DataTemplate>
                <Label Text="Order ID" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" BackgroundColor="Gray" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
            </DataTemplate>
        </syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
      </syncfusion:GridTextColumn>
      
       <syncfusion:GridTextColumn  MappingName="CustomerID">
         <syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
          <DataTemplate>
                <Label Text="Customer ID" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" BackgroundColor="Blue" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"  />
            </DataTemplate>
            </syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
       </syncfusion:GridTextColumn>
      
       <syncfusion:GridTextColumn  MappingName="Freight">
         <syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
          <DataTemplate>
                <Label Text="Freight" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" BackgroundColor="Aqua" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center"/>
            </DataTemplate>
            </syncfusion:GridTextColumn.HeaderTemplate>
