Does anyone know how to put an image in a datagrid's column header using C#? I've searched the Web high and low. I've found lots of articles talking about putting images in the datacells of a column but nothing on putting an image in a column's header.

Well, it is quiet a trick.

It should be like this.

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Employee ID">
                                          <asp:Label id="Label4" runat="server">Employee ID</asp:Label>
                                          <asp:Image id="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="admin.ico"></asp:Image>
                                          <asp:Label id=Label3 runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.employeeid") %>'>

It is just above Itemtemplate , add there is template called HEADERTEMPLATE. You can use it to display image in header.

Hope you got it right.
