Hi Guru's, I have a database and all of the field names (i.e. CustomerId, ProductId, ThisField, AndThat, ...)
I would like to return these in my grid headers as Customer Id, Product Id, This Field, And That
Grid would look like:
Customer Id |  Product Id | This Field | And That
1                    2                 asdf           dff
3                    5                 asdf           dff
7                    2                 asdf           dff

Has anybody ever done this?

If you have the field name, you can try something like:

string originalName = "CustomerId";
string readableName = "";

foreach (char ch in originalName) {
  if (ch == Char.ToUpper(ch))
    readableName += " ";
  readableName += ch;
}
