Description

How to style the header cells when their parent column is filtered.

Solution

To apply conditional styling of the header cells only when their parent column has a filter applied to it, you can create a style for the GridViewHeaderCell element with a DataTrigger pointing to the IsActive property of the respective column's ColumnFilterDescriptor.

<Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewHeaderCell"> 
    <Style.Triggers> 
        <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Path=Column.ColumnFilterDescriptor.(telerik:IColumnFilterDescriptor.IsActive), RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" Value="True"> 
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" /> 
        </DataTrigger> 
    </Style.Triggers> 
</Style>
