For Article 508 compatibility, the grid I have needs to have an ID attribute in the TH tags, and the HEADERS attribute in the TD tags. How can I accomplish this with RadGrid?

Hello,

In WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 Accessibility Complience demo linked below - RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX satisfies the requirements of "Section 508" for software accessibility:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/accessibility-and-internationalization/accessibility-compliance/defaultcs.aspx

As you can noticed the attributes you are asking for are not required.

They are required in my company. Is there a good way of doing it? Right now we are relying on javascript to dynamically inserts them, but it's not an ideal solution.

Hi,

We are using the techniques from this page : https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H63 
but you are looking for the one that associate each data cell with the appropriate headers as explained here: https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H43.html. This means that it is up to you to decide how to insert the id and header attributes - relying on javascript to do that sounds good.

However, I will forward your request for using this attributes to our developement team, so they can decide which technique would be more sufficient for the grid.
