We have a scenario in our application where all the sorting has to be handled by the web services and the client just needs to show the sorted data in an Advanced Data Grid.
The web services though returns details for the column on which it is being sorted and also the sort order i.e. ASC or DESC. So based on the same we need to simply show a ASC or DESC icon on the specified column header.
We tried different options, but it seems the sort icons only show up when sorting is actually applied to the collection. But since the sorting is to be dealt with from the web services, it is not possible to apply sorting on the client side as it may result is differentiating data.
So, can anyone please suggest a solution for this.
