I want to localize my GridView from xml file which has translation for my GridView headers.

I use next code:

   <Window.Resources>
        <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewDataColumn">
            <Setter Property="Header" Value="someValue"/>
        </Style>
    </Window.Resources>
  
  
<Grid>
    <telerik:RadGridView HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="radGridView1"  VerticalAlignment="Top"  >
  
    </telerik:RadGridView>
  
</Grid>


and my code behind:
public partial class Window1 : Window
{
    public Window1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
 
        var lst = new List<Foo>
                      {
                          new Foo() {CompanyName = "Burkinafaso", Phone = "6666"},
                          new Foo() {CompanyName = "Reebok", Phone = "555"}
                      };
 
        radGridView1.SetBinding(RadGridView.ItemsSourceProperty, new Binding {Source = lst});
    }
}
 
public class Foo
{
    public string CompanyName { get; set; }
    public string Phone { get; set; }
 
}

 
But Headers not change. Why I cannot change headers with this approach?
 I am planning to bind TextBlock to the XmlNode value and get appropriate translation by Header system name

Hi Imran,

This behavior occured because you create a style that targets at GridViewDataColumn, but this is not allowed because GridViewColumns are not visual objects. If you want to apply changes to the headers you should create a style that targets at GridViewHeaderCell. Having in mind your localization requirements the better approach is to create a DataTemplate and apply it to the Header property of GridViewDataColumn.
I have prepared an example for you that demonstrates this approach.
