I am using asp Net C#.  I have a datagrid and I am using template columns.

the aspx  code looks like

                                                <asp:TemplateColumn >
                                                      <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" VerticalAlign="Middle"></ItemStyle>
                                                      <HeaderTemplate>
                                                            <asp:label id="Label18" runat="server" Font-Names="Arial,Times New Roman,Verdana" Font-Size="10pt"
                                                                  Width="50 px" ForeColor="White" BackColor="#6495ed">Distance</asp:label>
                                                      </HeaderTemplate>

                                                      <ItemTemplate>
                                                            <asp:Label id="lblLabel18" Width="50" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Distance", "{0:F5}") %>' Runat="server">
                                                            </asp:Label>
                                                      </ItemTemplate>
                                                </asp:TemplateColumn>



In the aspx.cs code
I want to change the value of the header from"Distance" to something else based on the a value in the database.  

I have tried all your examples as you can see here :

                  dg.Columns[7].HeaderText = "MY TEST";

But the column still shows me "DISTANCE".

I have put the change in before, and after the databind but I still get "DISTANCE".

I am using C# with asp.net.  Many thanks in advance.

I think you need to disable the auto making of columns in the datagrid.
