Actually I couldn't understand exactly what do u mean, but if what you want is to add a clickable text in the header of a data grid to let the header be selected, if so then try to read this:

I don't know if the header can be selected directly, but I don't think so, but there is a tricky way: by adding a normal button or a link button to the header of the data grid (*), and to add code that changes the back color of the header, this will seem as it is selected.
(*) for how to add this button in the header do the following:
1. right click the data grid, then select property builder.
2. select columns, and add a template column, then close the property builder window.
3. right click the data grid and select edit template and choose the column u have just added.
4. the grid appearence will change to seperate the header,item and footer, so u can add a button to the header place.
5. set the (command name) property of the added button to something (SelectHeader) for example.
6. view the code of the page and add this code to the data grid item command event:
if e.CommandName = "SelectHeader" Then
DataGrid.HeaderStyle.BackColor = Color.Yellow
End If

I hope this would help, otherwise plz re-post to clear the idea

Ok, I know the code I just posted doesn't try to select the header, but I'm just trying to get the button IN the header to fire an event, of some sort.

At present this is not happening. When it does I'll get it to select the header or whatever I want it to do.

I actually want this so I can do things like add a new record to a table.

How do I "row-wrap" ? i.e., have 2 rows of headers, and 2 rows in grid for each data record?
Hi I have built a view in Sql Server, and built my Sql Data Source, and everything looks good... I have my data grid populating nicely. But, I want the headers and rows to wrap - not inside each cell, but to fit the page. Let's say I have 10 columns, and only 5 will fit in the width of a webpage.  I would want the headers to wrap, so there are two rows of headers, then each data record would fill 2 rows in the grid. Example:  <headers> Last Name................First Name.............. Middle Name.............DOB............SSN............. <end of this row in grid>...
