Is there any way to set/override the RadGrid Header Color while using the default skin.
I tried all possible ways and couldnt make it happen.

Thank you,

Hello Deva,

You can easily override the background image and replace it with a color of your choice:
<style type="text/css">
    .RadGrid_Black th.rgHeader
    {
        background-image: none;
        background-color: #ba000c;
    }
</style>

Replace "Black" with the skin name you use.

I strongly recommend you examine this blog post:

Thanks again Daniel.

Your solutions works perfectly fine. Thank you.

Earlier - I didnt set the background-image: none;

As per your directions - I wrote this and it is working fine. Thank you so much.

.RadGrid_Default th.rgHeader
{
 background-image: none;
 background-color: #ba000c;
}

Thank you,
Deva

I cant get mine to work for some reason.
th.GridHeader_Sunset 
    font10px ArialHelveticasans-serif
    color#FFFFFF
}  
 

If I add a bold to the style above the bolding takes effect, but if I change the font color or size it does nothing... why would that be?

Not only that, if I open the RadGrid property builder, it doesn't show me any style options in the 'Styles Manager' for Header.  If I click on footer or pager, or anything else it gives me options....

Hello Shawn,

You should be trying the following css code to set the style for the grid header:
css:
   .RadGrid_Sunset th.rgHeader  
    {  
        font:10px ArialHelveticasans-serif;  
        color:#FFFFFF;  
    } 

Also, you should be able to find the HeaderStyle option in the RadGrid property builder to set the required styles for the header.

Thanks
Princy.

Hello.

I don't understand what are the functions of the HeaderStyle-xxx attributes that we can define in the grid and MasterTableView definition.
Actually they don't seem to have any effect. Why do we have to override the skin's style attributes. Why not simply use the HeaderStyle-xxx properties ?

WIth the suggested solution I tried to change the font size of the header but it does not work. Do you have any idea ?

div.RadGrid_Office2007 th.rgHeader  
{    
    font-sizexx-small;  
}  
 

Thanks
Regards
Augusto

Hello Augusto,

Some HeaderStyle properties (e.g. ForeColor, Font-Underline) do not work when sorting is enabled, because the properties are applied to the header cell and the linkbuttons inside do not inherit them (which is normal).

However, font-size should work when being set declaratively. If it doesn't, then you have some more specific styles for LinkButtons (<a> elements) in your application and should check that with a tool such as Firebug.

Here is a simple demo, which works as expected:

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
  
<script runat="server">
  
    protected void RadGrid_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
    {
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        DataRow dr;
        int colsNum = 4;
        int rowsNum = 4;
        string colName = "Column";
  
        for (int j = 1; j <= colsNum; j++)
        {
            dt.Columns.Add(String.Format("{0}{1}", colName, j));
        }
  
        for (int i = 1; i <= rowsNum; i++)
        {
            dr = dt.NewRow();
  
            for (int k = 1; k <= colsNum; k++)
            {
                dr[String.Format("{0}{1}", colName, k)] = String.Format("{0}{1} Row{2}", colName, k, i);
            }
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
        }
  
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = dt;
    }
      
</script>
  
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
  
<head runat="server">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
<title>RadControls</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
  
<telerik:RadGrid
    ID="RadGrid1"
    runat="server"
    AutoGenerateEditColumn="true"
    AllowSorting="true"
    OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid_NeedDataSource">
    <MasterTableView>
        <HeaderStyle Font-Size="XX-Small" />
    </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>
  
</form>
</body>
</html>

Hi Nalini,

To achieve the desired result you should add  "div" to the selector as shown below: 
<style type="text/css">
        div.RadGrid_Sunset th.rgHeader,
        div.RadGrid_Sunset th.rgSorted
        {
            background-image: none;
            background-color: Red;
            color: White;
        }
    </style>

Thus the CSS rule has higher weight than the skin's rule.

The css you provided did not really work. background can take effect but not the fore-color.
