   ’ Put user code to initialize the page here
   	Dim arrlist As New ArrayList()
	arrlist.Add('Tips')
	arrlist.Add('Tricks')
	arrlist.Add('Code')
	arrlist.Add('Samples')
	DataGrid1.DataSource = arrlist
	DataGrid1.DataBind()
	ViewState('AList') = arrlist
End Sub ’Page_Load

Protected Sub SortData([source] As [Object], e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridSortCommandEventArgs)
	If ViewState('SortOrder') Is Nothing Then
      		SortAsc()
   	Else
		If ViewState('SortOrder').ToString() = ' ASC' Then
			SortDesc()
      		Else
         			SortAsc()
      		End If
   	End If
End Sub ’SortData
 
Sub SortAsc()
	ViewState('SortOrder') = ' ASC'
	CType(ViewState('AList'), ArrayList).Sort()
	DataGrid1.DataSource = ViewState('AList')
	DataGrid1.DataBind()
	ViewState('Sort') = 'DESC'
End Sub ’SortAsc

Sub SortDesc()
	ViewState('SortOrder') = ' DESC'
	CType(ViewState('AList'), ArrayList).Sort()
