Hi,

You can do it like this
Dim intCells As Int16
        For intCells = 0 To GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells.Count - 1
            If GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells(intCells).Text.IndexOf("*") > -1 Then
                GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells(intCells).BackColor = Drawing.Color.Yellow
            End If
        Next

Open in new window
