The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridHeadersVisibility enumeration. This example is part of a larger example available in the Walkthrough: Customizing the DataGrid Control Using Properties topic.

Private Sub cbHeaders_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs)
    Dim cb As ComboBox = sender
    Dim cbi As ComboBoxItem = cb.SelectedItem
    If Me.dataGrid1 IsNot Nothing Then
        If cbi.Content.ToString() = "All" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.All
        ElseIf cbi.Content.ToString() = "Column (Default)" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.Column
        ElseIf cbi.Content.ToString() = "Row" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.Row
            Me.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.None
        End If
    End If
End Sub
private void cbHeaders_SelectionChanged(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    ComboBoxItem cbi = ((ComboBox)sender).SelectedItem as ComboBoxItem;
    if (this.dataGrid1 != null)
        if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "All")
            this.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.All;
        else if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "Column (Default)")
            this.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.Column;
        else if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "Row")
            this.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.Row;
            this.dataGrid1.HeadersVisibility = DataGridHeadersVisibility.None;
