    I am trying to modify the contents of a RadGrid Column HeaderText item in C#.

    I was unable to modify inline font characteristics from within the HeaderText property in the markup, so i tried in the code-behind thusly:

    01.protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
    02.        {
    03.            if (e.Item is GridHeaderItem)
    04.            {
    05.                GridHeaderItem header = (GridHeaderItem)e.Item;
    07.                foreach (string col in SysInvCols)
    08.                {
    09.                    Label lbl = new Label();
    10.                    lbl.ID = "Label1";
    11.                    header[col].Controls.Add(lbl);
    12.                    lbl.Text = "E";
    13.                    lbl.Font.Name = "Windings 3";
    14.                }
    15.            }

    Unfortunately, the font is not modified as i would expect.  Is there another way to do what i'm trying to do?

    Note: ASCII Character Code 69, the captial letter E in latin, and in wingdings 3 it is a pair of arrows (one pointing up and the other pointing down).

    Please see attached image for clarity.

    Unfortunately, I forgot to mention that the output just appends a capital E to the end of the headerText item in the grid column, and that the variable sysInvCols is a list of string values equal to the column header names.

    Could you try setting different font to the header text inside grid PreRender event and let me know about the result.
