Is it possible to user richtextfield control inside gridlayout header?

Hello All,

    RichTextField Cannot be used in header cells but there is a work around to achieve it. Leave the actual header cells as empty and make a static rowlayout to give headers for the grid using richtextfield inside the rowlayout. You can have additional row layouts for the grid values. But here the disadvantage is you will see a blank header on the first row of the grid.

    Example Code:

    a!gridLayout(headerCells:{a!gridLayoutHeaderCell(

     label:""

    ),

    a!gridLayoutHeaderCell(

     label:""

    )},

    rows:{

     a!gridRowLayout(

    contents:{a!richTextDisplayField(

      value:a!richTextItem(text:"Name",style:"STRONG")

    ),

    a!richTextDisplayField(

      value:a!richTextItem(text:"Address",style:"STRONG")

    )}

    ),

    a!gridRowLayout(

    contents:{a!textField(

      value:"Test Name"

    ),

    a!textField(

      value:"Test Address"

    )}

    )

    }

    )
