Is there a way to either set the header to be vertical or to style a column in XAML.  I have a old  vb6 Flexgrid control that I need to replicate and I can do all of it in code -- but I wanted to style it to be grey(ghostwhite) and set the width and if possible define the static parts all in XAML and then just update the data parts in code
Private Sub BuildGrid(ByRef g As Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadGridView, ByRef d As IBIDData.Client) 
        Dim dt As New DataTable(g.Name)

Hi Mark,

The GridViewDataColumn class has a property HeaderCellStyle which allows you to controls the style of header cells. You can find more information about styling header cells in our online documentation .

You can also create a vertical header by supplying a custom Header content and using LayoutTransform:

<telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Name" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}">
                <RotateTransform Angle="90"/>
            <TextBlock Text="My Vertical Header"/>

Do not hesitate to write if you have more questions, we will be glad to help you.

Sincerely yours,
the Telerik team
