Property Value

The DataTemplate to use to display the column headers as part of the GridView. The default value is null.


The following example shows how to set the ColumnHeaderTemplate property.

<DataTemplate x:Key="myHeaderTemplate">
    <TextBlock FontSize="16" Foreground="DarkBlue">
<GridView ColumnHeaderTemplate="{StaticResource myHeaderTemplate}"
          ColumnHeaderContainerStyle="{StaticResource myHeaderStyle}">
  <GridViewColumn Header="Year" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateYear}"/>
  <GridViewColumn Header="Month" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateMonth}"/>
  <GridViewColumn Header="Day" Width="80"
        CellTemplate="{StaticResource myCellTemplateDay}"/>


If the ColumnHeaderTemplate property and the ColumnHeaderTemplateSelector property are both set, the ColumnHeaderTemplate property takes precedence.

This property represents one of several ways to lay out and style column headers. For more information, see GridView Column Header Styles and Templates Overview.
