public DataTemplateSelector ColumnHeaderTemplateSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

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


A template that defines the presentation of column headers is specified by the DataViewBase.TotalSummaryItemTemplate property. If you have more than one template that can be used to render column headers, 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 ColumnHeaderTemplateSelector property.

If both the DataViewBase.ColumnHeaderTemplate and ColumnHeaderTemplateSelector are specified, a column header is rendered using the template returned by the template selector. If the template selector returns null, the template specified by the DataViewBase.ColumnHeaderTemplate property is used.
