Can I change the header text in my gridview?

This piece of code changes all my column headers to "test" but I need a way to change each column separately. Is there a way  to adapt this code to make different headers for each column? I have five columns. Thanks
foreach (DataControlFieldCell cell in GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells)
            cell.Text = "test";

Open in new window

Did you try: this.GridView1.Columns[5].HeaderText = "whatever";
try this...

GridView1.Columns[0].HeaderText = "test";
GridView1.Columns[1].HeaderText = "test1";
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.
