    I am using a Telerik RadGrid in my project.
    The concept is i will use single grid for the whole project.
    In that grid SelectColumn[one checkbox column],Edit and Delete columns are common for all pages.
    Other column will vary based on the page.

    So i have set 'AutoGenerateColumn = true'.
    And i have created 3 static columns i.e) one.GridClientSelectColumn and two GridButtonColumns [one for delete and another one for edit].
    At run time i will bind the grid as 'AutoGeneratecolumn = true' other columns will come based the datasource.

    I have assigned the 'Item-Style' for the Horizontal and Vertical alignments.But it is not working.
    Here is my code in aspx
                                <Telerik:GridClientSelectColumn UniqueName="SelectColumn" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" 
                                    <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" VerticalAlign="Middle" /> 
                                <Telerik:GridButtonColumn UniqueName="EditColumn" CommandName="View" ButtonType="ImageButton" 
                                    ImageUrl="~/img/Edit.gif" Text="Edit" HeaderText="Edit" ItemStyle-Width="20px" 
                                    HeaderStyle-Width="20px" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" Resizable="false" 
                                    <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" VerticalAlign="Middle" /> 
                                <Telerik:GridButtonColumn UniqueName="DeleteColumn" CommandName="Delete" Text="Delete" 
                                    HeaderText="Delete" ButtonType="ImageButton" ImageUrl="~/img/Delete_Telerik.gif" 
                                    ConfirmText="Are you sure you want to delete?" ItemStyle-VerticalAlign="Middle" 
                                    ConfirmTitle="Delete" HeaderStyle-Width="20px" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" 
                                    <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" VerticalAlign="Middle" /> 
                                <table width="100%" style="height: 75px;" border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1"
                                    <tr align="left"
                                        <td align="left" valign="middle"
                                            <br /> 
                                            <br /> 
                                            No records to display 

    But still Select checkbox, Edit image and Delete image and other column Text all are left aligned.
    What is the problem?
    I need to set vertical aligned middle and horizondal aligned center...
    Please give me the solution.

    Hi Kumar,

    Your code works as expected on my side. Please send a complete runnable demo or inspect your page with some web developer tool such as Firebug. You may see some styles, which override the ones in the RadGrid.

            string colName = "Column";
            for (int j = 1; j <= colsNum; j++)
                dt.Columns.Add(String.Format("{0}{1}", colName, j));
