Adding Class Names

The className property applies additional class to the td element and can be used for styling the background, text color, text alignment, and other styling options of the Grid.

    <GridColumn field="ProductName" title="Product Name" className="product-name">
    product-name {
        color: "white";
        background-color: "#888888"
    }

Individual Elements

You can individually style the elements of the Grid by using CSS.

The Grid provides multiple elements that can be individually styled. Before you apply the styling options to the desired elements, inspect the element and use selectors of higher priority.

    }

Sort Icons

The following example demonstrates how to style the appearance of the sort ascending-order icon in the Grid.

    .k-header>.k-link>.k-i-sort-asc-sm {
        color:"red"
    }
