Remarks

The header row is displayed at the top of the DetailsView control when the HeaderText or HeaderTemplate property is set. Use the HeaderRow property to programmatically access the DetailsViewRow object that represents the header row.

Note

The HeaderRow property is available only after the DetailsView control creates the header row in the ItemCreated event.

This property is commonly used when you need to programmatically manipulate the header row, for example when adding custom content. Any modification to the HeaderRow property must be performed after the DetailsView control has been rendered; otherwise, the DetailsView control will overwrite any changes.
