Object Type Path to AllowMultilineHeaders


You can include newline characters in column headers and band headers using the “\n” escape sequence in C#, and the VbCrLf constant in Visual Basic. By default, the AllowMultilineHeaders property is set to false and as a result, newline characters are ignored when the grid is printed/exported. For newlines to be in effect in the print/export output, set the AllowMultilineHeaders property to true.


By default, column and band headers are not auto enlarged to fit multi-line text. You can make the header panels bigger using the GridView.ColumnPanelRowHeight and BandedGridView.BandPanelRowHeight properties, respectively.
