    First, I am starting from this very helpful article: thank you for the recursive solution. VERY helpful: row-header-text

    Next, maybe it was asked, how do we set the width of the row header? And/or text horizontal alignment? And/or position of the editor icon(s)?

    Because while we're getting the row indexing we're looking for, the icons paint over top of that, or vice versa.

    Thank you...

    Best regards.

    Hi Michael,

    You can change the width of the row header column by setting RowHeaderColumnWidth property of GridTableElement:
    this.radGridView1.TableElement.RowHeaderColumnWidth = 50;

    Then you should use the ViewCellFormatting event to change text-image relation:
    void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
        GridRowHeaderCellElement cell = e.CellElement as GridRowHeaderCellElement;
        if (cell != null)
            cell.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText;
            cell.Text = "1";

    I hope this helps.
