Hi Keith,

It is more relative on how the datagrid object displays the header
than a direct issue in DGH.

This padding issue represents the reserved size of the small arrow
icon associated to the header and shown when a column is sorted.

When the size of a column falls under 40 pixels and the header
aligmnent is center or right, the label will be hidden totally or
partially by this reserved size.

I could imagine you have reduced the size of the checkbox column. If
you have no need to sort this column I could demonstrate how to fix
this by changing the default header parent script of the datagrid.

Let me know . I have not my regular LC kit with me, but I could post
this later today.

Best regards,
