Hello,
I have set up membership in an ASP.NET application.

I need to show all the Roles of the application in a GridView GV1.

so wrote in some event :
GV1.DataSource = Roles.GetAllRoles()
GV1.DataBind()

It worked fine, and the Roles are displayed in one column in GV1, having a header of ITEM.
I need to change the header Text to Role for Instance,
How can i do this?
thanks
I am using VB

This is one way...there might be some more simple way which I might not be aware of:
Use GridView RowDataBound Event like below:

Protected Sub GV1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs)
    If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Header Then
        For Each cell As TableCell In e.Row.Cells
            cell.Text = "Role"
        Next
    End If
End Sub

My bad...you don't need a For Each loop just set like below:
Assuming it as first column....i.e. index=0...

 If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Header Then
        e.Row.Cells(0).Text = "Role"
    End If
