Hello Frank,

To set multi-line text in the header, you can use the following code:

radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns["myColumn"].HeaderText = "first line \n Second line \n third line";

You must also set the correct header row height trough GridTableElement.TableHeaderHeight property:

((GridTableElement)this.radGridView1.GridElement).TableHeaderHeight  = 50;

You can do this through the Properties in the design view as well.

 
All the best,

Does this code still work for the current version of RadGrid for WinForms?  Also, what would be the code used for VB?

Hi Larry,

Thank you for your question. Please, consider the following code snippet:

 
 
   Me.radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns("myColumn").HeaderText = "first line " & vbLf & " second line " & vbLf & " third line" 
   Me.radGridView1.AutoSizeRows = True 
 
 

You can change the header text of an existing column; in the above example, I change the text of the column with the name "myColumn". Further, you can separate the lines of the header text using \n. In the current version of RadGridView, you do not have to set manually the height of the header row. All you need is to set is the AutoSizeRows property to true. Thus, the height of all rows will be automatically calculated depending on the content of the cells in the row.

I hope this helps. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us back.

Hello manoj sagoi,

Thank you for writing. Currently, ExportToExcelML does not support multiline header text. We will include this feature in some of the next releases. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi,

I have installed the Q2 2013 release of Rad controls for WPF. I want to have to 2 rows for a single record in the rad grid view. The thing is I am using Prism framework with MEF. Is it possible to do the same in the xaml itself instead of code behind code ? If so could you please share code for this ?

{field: "recordedInvestment", title: "Recorded<br>Investment",filterable: {cell: { inputWidth: gridWidth*0.06 ,type:"number",showOperators: false, operator: "eq"} },format: "{0:$ #,##.##}",minResizableWidth:gridWidth*0.06 }

 

 

while defining the column headers use <br> tag where u want it in next line. it worked for me.

With Excel, we can enter a column name, and create a line break with the Alt-Enter key combination. How can we get the same effect (one or more lines in the column names) with Smartsheet?

Hello, Zim,  

I would like to note that this forum is related to the Telerik UI for WinForms suite. However, it seems that you are using Smartsheet which is not connected to our suite. Could you please confirm the product that you are currently using?

Select the cells that you would like to apply a Wrapped Text format to;
From the Format menu select Cells and then click the Alignment tab;
Put a check mark in the Wrap Text option and click OK.

Hello, Nate,    

The described solution is not applicable for the RadGridView in the Telerik UI for WinForms suite which is the specified product for this forum thread.

In order to wrap the text in the cells, it is suitable to subscribe to the RadGridView.ViewCellFormatting event and set the CellElement.TextWrap property to true

private void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    e.CellElement.TextWrap = true;
}

I hope this information helps.
