Styling Indent Cells

RadGridView exposes different indent cells and indicator presenters depending on its current state - being grouped, in a hierarchy, or displaying the corresponding footers. Figure 1 outlines the visual structure of those elements for a grouped RadGridView with the ShowColumnFooters and ShowGroupFooters properties set to True.

Indent Cells

RadGridView exposes four different indent cell types:

  • GridViewIndentCell: It is part of the GridViewRow.

  • GridViewHeaderIndentCell: It is part of the GridViewHeaderRow.

  • GridViewFooterIndentCell: It is part of the GridViewFooterRow.

  • GridViewGroupFooterIndentCell: It is part of the GridViewGroupFooterRow.

Similarly to other RadGridView elements, you may alter their appearance by modifying their default styles or by directly editing their control templates. Example 1 demonstrates how to create styles that target those elements.

Example 1: Styling Indent Cells

<Application.Resources> 
    <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewIndentCell"> 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" /> 
    </Style> 
 
    <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewHeaderIndentCell"> 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Blue" /> 
    </Style> 
 
    <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewFooterIndentCell"> 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Green" /> 
    </Style> 
 
    <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewGroupFooterIndentCell"> 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Yellow" /> 
    </Style> 
</Application.Resources>

Indicator Presenters

RadGridView exposes five indicator presenters, each of them belonging to the corresponding row:

  • GridViewRow

  • GridViewHeaderRow

  • GridViewGroupRow

  • GridViewGroupFooterRow

  • GridViewFooterRow

You may customize each of them by editing the control template of the respective row and modifying the Border element named PART_IndicatorPresenter.
