I have created wrapper for tekerik grid in c# MVC code.

Now I want to add checkbox/image in header instead of plain text.

I have found one property named "Telerik.Web.Mvc.UI.GridColumnSettings.HeaderTemplate" but it is of type delegate Action.

I do not have idea how to set the header template and finally checkbox/image.


Kindly suggest.


Thanks & Regards

Hello Sakshi,

Thank you for the details provided.

In order to achieve the desired behavior, I would recommend using HTML elements as a string for a parameter in the Header Template of the Kendo UI Grid.

Here is an example for a checkbox in the header of the column:

columns.Bound(p => p.ShipName).HeaderTemplate("<input type='checkbox' id='check - all' /><label for='check - all'>Check All</label>");
Example of implementing an image in the header template:
columns.Bound(p => p.ShipCity).HeaderTemplate("<img src='HERE INSERT LINK TO AN IMAGE' alt='Girl in a jacket' width='100' height='100'>");
Attached is a sample project that I prepared for the case. It includes the implementations above. Make the needed tests locally with the project attached and let me know if further assistance is needed.


Kind Regards,
