    sorting datagrid column

    mikkin123
      Hello everyone,

      I am looking to sort a column in the datagrid that is getting populated by the database. I want to sort the column without user having to click on the header. Also I cannot use orderby or groupby commands in sql, just in case if you wonder why am not doing that instead. Any help would be really appreciated.

      Thanks

          See this help topic, then execute the sort in the DataGridColumn or DataGrid creationComplete event handler:

            Hey Greg,
            Thanks for that topic. Actually, I have already checked that out and it still needs the user click on the header of the column for sorting. I am specifically looking for the sorting to take place without any user clicks. Actually, I have this radio button group with two choices asc or desc. If a user checks asc and then presses the submit button on the page, then the data is displayed in ascending order and the other way for desc. I am sorry, I cannot post the code due to corporate security rules.

            Once again thanks for the help and it would be great if anyone can help with this part.

            Thanks
