Subheader (subcolumns)

  1. Can anybody help me to make my DataGrid header
    like below one?
    | | | SomeText
    H1| H2 | H3 | -------------------
    | | | H4 | H5 | H6

    In the plain HTML, this can be achieved using RowSpan and ColumnSpan
    attributes. But how to apply it to the DataGrid?
    I have some experience in manipulating a DataGrid content from a code.
    So I decided to add one extra header row below the existing one and thru
    modifying theirs cells, get what I need. But my test code failed at a very
    first step!
    I called below code from DataGrid_Prerender and instead of getting an extra
    header row with a text "test", I got an empty row. Without <td> elements

    //this fragment from browser's Source View

    //the code from Grid_Prerender()

    DataGridItem hdr = null, sub;
    TableCell cell;
    int c;

    for (c = 0; c < Grid.Controls[0].Controls.Count; c++)
    hdr = Grid.Controls[0].Controls[c] as DataGridItem;
    if (hdr != null && hdr.ItemType == ListItemType.Header)
    if (hdr == null || hdr.ItemType != ListItemType.Header)
    sub = new DataGridItem(-1, -1, ListItemType.Header);
    cell = new TableCell();
    cell.ColumnSpan = hdr.Cells.Count;
    cell.Text = "test";
    Grid.Controls[0].Controls.AddAt(c + 1, sub);

    If above problem will be solved, my next step is to try to
    cells from above 2 header rows and, may be, I will get some result.
