1) To center the header text

Me.DataGridView1.RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
2) On the column 3 (index 2) but some backcolor

Me.DataGridView1.Columns(2).DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue
3) You want to change the font ?

Me.DataGridView1.Font = New Font("Arial", 8)

Can you show a picture ?
Just note that it will not be correctly center because some space on the right are reserved to the sort arrows. If you don't need to sort you can remove it that option and the text will be correctly at the center.
What jpaulino is saying is that, for instance, use this to center the header text:

Me.DataGridView1.RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter

and on the columns that you don't need to sort ascending or descending, to remove the sort glyph (the small triangle that appears on the header, right of the header text), use this for each column:

Me.DataGridView1.Columns("CategoryName").SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable

this will remove the sort glyph and allow the text to be sorted right on the middle of the column header.


Check the picture of this post to see if this is what you're getting on the headers texts:

with my previous post, you will be able to solve the problem as I solved mine.
