Default Dynamic Table Column Headers

Hi All ASP.Net Guru,

Im trying to display the records of a dynamic table using datagrid and would like to change its column headers. The Caption property of data column doesnt work however. I understand that in order for the Caption property to work, AutoGenerageColumns property must be set to false. I cannot do this however, because my table is dynamic. Is there a way to change the headers of a dynamic table?

Thank you in advance!

You can use the ItemDataBound event, an e.g. as below:

if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Header)
                e.Item.Cells[0].Text = "New Header";


Fortune favours the brave, so don't regret on missed oppurtunities.
