The item that labels the control. The default value is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


You can set a data template for the Header by using the HeaderTemplate property.

XAML usage for properties of HeaderedItemsControl also exists on TreeView. In this case, the object element you set the properties on is sdk:TreeView rather than sdk:HeaderedItemsControl.
