Is it possible to alter the orientation of the Header Text in a DataGrid?  What I'm referring to is a feature that Microsoft Excel offer.  When text is entered into a cell, the user can format that cell, selecting the alignment, and rotate the text 90, 45, -90 degrees, etc....  The reason I'd like to do this is to make the text vertical to shrink the width of the column.  

Instead of:
COLUMN 1

It would be:
C
O
L
U
M
N

1

The question is: Is it possible?  If so and you can provide some example, I'll increate the points.  My hunch is that it's not possible or more trouble then it's worth.

How much willl you increase the points??? :-)

Set AutoGenerateColumns to false, specify the column manually and set the HeaderText to:

C<br>O<br>L<br>U<br>M<br>N<br>1

Ahhh, very good!  I can work with that idea.

Since it was relatively easy and not exactly what I was looking for, I'll bump it up but not WAY UP.  125 points awared to jnhorst.
