    [CLOSED] Grid column header is not showing when Text is EMPTY

    In Ext.Net 4.5 v, if grid has a single column and it's Text is empty, the header is NOT showing, what could be the reason and how to solve this? We need a clickable header with NO Text or Empty Text.
    The same was worked in Ext.Net 2.5 version.
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>
    <script runat="server">
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (!X.IsAjaxRequest)
                this.GridPanel1.Store.Primary.DataSource = new object[]
                    new object[] { true, DateTime.Now, 1 },
                    new object[] { false, DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1), 2 },
                    new object[] { true, DateTime.Now.AddDays(-2), 3 },
                    new object[] { false, DateTime.Now.AddDays(-3), 4 },
                    new object[] { true, DateTime.Now.AddDays(-4), 5 }

                    <ext:Store runat="server">

                                    <ext:ModelField Name="booleanCol" Type="Boolean" />
                                    <ext:ModelField Name="dateCol" Type="Date" />
                                    <ext:ModelField Name="numberCol" Type="Int" />
                <ColumnModel runat="server" ColumnsText="Test">
                        <ext:Column runat="server" Text="" EmptyCellText="test">                       
                    <ext:GridView runat="server" StripeRows="true" />

    Hello @iansriley!

    Indeed, if all column grids' text are empty, an "auto hide headers" grid feature kicks in and hides the header at all... But I would agree with you that this could kill column sorting, title menus, and a series of other functionalities.

    Although not native support is implemented to it, there's a quick way to completely disable this whole functionality in a given grid panel context:

    <%-- By design, it will auto-ride headers if all headers on the grid have no text. --%>
        <ext:ConfigItem Name="shouldAutoHideHeaders" Value="function() { return false; }" Mode="Raw" />
    This will always tell the grid panel it should not automatically hide columns' headers. This is kind of an edge case, I'm not sure that would be worth a feature request to implement this as a config option given the ease to overcome this default behavior, but your opinion on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope this helps!
