    Hi to all,

    I can't canter Header and cell of GridViewCheckBoxColumn...

    Is it normal for specific reason?

    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Dettaglio Campi">
        <telerik:RadGridView ItemsSource="{Binding DettaglioCampiEnteCertificante}" Style="{StaticResource DettaglioCampiStyle}">
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding CampoId}" Header="ID" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding CampoCertificatoReference.Nome}" Header="Nome" IsReadOnly="True"/>
                <telerik:GridViewCheckBoxColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Obbligatorio}" Header="Obbligatorio" TextAlignment="Center" HeaderTextAlignment="Center"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Ordinamento}" Header="Ordinamento" TextAlignment="Center" HeaderTextAlignment="Center"/>
                <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding SchedeCertificatoMaterialeReference.Count}" Header="Riferimenti" TextAlignment="Right" HeaderTextAlignment="Right"/>

    Hello Dario,

    The TextAlignment property of RadGridView's columns only applies to its TextBlock elements. If you need to center the GridViewCheckBox element, you could define the following style, targeting the GridViewCell element and set it as the column's CellStyle.

    <Style x:Key="GridViewCellStyle" TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell" BasedOn="{StaticResource GridViewCellStyle}">
        <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center" />

    Regarding the HeaderTextAlignment property, if you resize the column you will notice that it is indeed applied. The reason this is not obvious in the image you provided is that space has been allocated for the filtering icon and sort indicator inside of the GridViewHeaderCell element's default control template. You can edit this template in order to achieve the desired look.

    I hope you find this information helpful. Please let me know if I can further assist you in any way.
