Renaming DataGridView Column Header at Runtime

Renaming DataGridView Column Header at Runtime

Renaming DataGridView Column Header at Runtime

(OP)
I'm trying to rename a dg column header text at runtime. dg.Columns(1).HeaderText = "TEXT" I cannot seem to get the headertext to change. I've tried it in the RowDataBound event and no luck. tried on page load and no luck. I get no error but the header text doesn't change. I have auto generate columns set to false.

Any help would be appreciated

Post your GridView markup and any code you have tried so far

it turns out I was trying to format the header text before there was any data going into the grid. I had to make sure the datasource was set first on the grid then I was able to format the header text to what I wanted.
