Remarks

The header row is displayed at the top of the DetailsView control when the HeaderText or HeaderTemplate property is set. Use the HeaderText property to specify the text to display in the header row. To control the style of the header row, use the HeaderStyle property. Alternatively, you can define your own custom user interface (UI) for the header row by setting the HeaderTemplate property instead of this property.

Note

If both the HeaderText and HeaderTemplate properties are set, the HeaderTemplate property takes precedence.

The value of HeaderText is stored in view state.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and Globalization and Localization.
