You need to check the row, to make sure that it is a data row.

GridView.RowDataBound Event
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.rowdatabound(v=vs.110).aspx

Sub CustomersGridView_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridViewRowEventArgs)

    If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

      ' Display the company name in italics.
      e.Row.Cells(1).Text = "<i>" & e.Row.Cells(1).Text & "</i>"

    End If

  End Sub

Open in new window

My problems is when I do the server.htmldecode in the heading I can't sort on that column If I use the code below I lose the ability to sort on column 4.

Protected Sub gvFamiliesUnderQuota_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles gvFamiliesUnderQuota.RowDataBound

          If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Header Then          
            e.Row.Cells(4).Text = "Fundraising<br/>Profit"
            e.Row.Cells(4).Text = Server.HtmlDecode(e.Row.Cells(4).Text)

You can customize the header column and add a custom image for sorting.
