Hi

I have a data grid and I am wondering if the column header text can be vertical ?  If so, how do you make the text vertical?

Within the grid I have columns with Y and N, I want to make the background of the cell Green if Y and Red if N - what do I need to do to achieve this?

Hello, Neil,    

In order make the header text vertical, feel free to use the following code snippet: 

        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            this.radGridView1.ViewCellFormatting+=radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting;
            this.radGridView1.TableElement.TableHeaderHeight = 90; 
        }

        private void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        {
            GridHeaderCellElement element = sender as GridHeaderCellElement;
            if (element != null)
            {
                element.TextOrientation = Orientation.Vertical;
                element.FlipText = true;
            } 
        }

As to the question about styling the cell considering the data value, it is appropriate to use the CellFormatting event. Please refer to the following help article demonstrating how to use it: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/cells/formatting-cells

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
