Property Value

Type Description

A DataTemplateSelector descendant that chooses a template based on custom logic.


A template that defines the presentation of the customization area displayed within the column's header is specified by the ColumnBase.HeaderCustomizationAreaTemplate property. If you have more than one template that can be used to render this area, you can implement custom logic to choose the required template. To do this, derive from the DataTemplateSelector class, implement the SelectTemplate method that returns a template which meets the required condition, and assign it to the HeaderCustomizationAreaTemplateSelector property.

If both the ColumnBase.HeaderCustomizationAreaTemplate and HeaderCustomizationAreaTemplateSelector are specified, the column header's customization area is rendered using the template returned by the template selector. If the template selector returns null, the template specified by the ColumnBase.HeaderCustomizationAreaTemplate property is used.
