I want to change HeaderText of Datagrid. This is my solution
Here my code:
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="ProductID" SortExpression="ProductID" HeaderText="Product ID"></asp:BoundColumn>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="ProductName" SortExpression="ProductName" HeaderText="<%# GetText() %>"></asp:BoundColumn>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="QuantityPerUnit" SortExpression="QuantityPerUnit" HeaderText="Quantity Per Unit"></asp:BoundColumn>
----
private string GetText()
{
     return "Hello";
}

But I get Error:

CS0117: 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.BoundColumn' does not contain a definition for 'DataBinding'

Note: I don't want to use:
MyDataGrid.Columns[2].HeaderText="Hello";      

Thanks!

Since it a bound column u have to specify the DataField property of the Column.  If u are populating the Column from a DataTable then DataField is one of the columns of this dataTable. Howeveru can have a Column Header Text of your choice by using the HeaderText property.

See the following link on BoundColumns.
