Freezing GridView Column Headers

Posted by Ravi Varma Thumati on May 12, 2009

For Freezing GridView Header column

Put GridView in Panel or Div Tag.

  < asp:Panel runat=”server” style=”height:300px; width:700px;” >

 < asp:GridView runat=”server” AllowPaging=”False” AllowSorting=”True”
                AutoGenerateColumns=”False” DataKeyNames=”id” DataSourceID=”SqlDataSource1″ Width=”700px” BorderWidth=”0″ >
                < Columns >
      < asp:BoundField DataField=”id” HeaderText=”ID” SortExpression=”id” / >
          < / Columns >


Next create freez Css Class

Next, I created the container css style class as Mitch suggests …

/* So the overflow scrolls */
.freez {overflow:auto;}

/* Keep the header cells positioned as we scroll */
.freez table th {position:relative;}

/* For alignment of the scroll bar */
.freez table tbody {overflow-x:hidden;}

But,Problem is that it work fine in IE but not in FireFox.

    It won’t give you desired result when parent control or the page itself has scroll bar. As the GridView header is assigned fixed position, all the contents will scroll, but the header.
