DataGrid + Sort arrow disappears.


I have a problem when doing custom sorting on the DataGrid.

I've attached an eventhandler with Grid.SortColumnsChanging += Grid_SortColumnsChanging.

Now, in the eventhandler I have e.Cancel = true as the last line, so that it won't continue doing the default sorting (it results in an exception due to my dataentity). But when I do this cancel, the grid won't show the sort direction, or the sort column, in the column headers. 

How do I fix this?

Hi Nicky,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.


We have analyzed your query. By using the custom sort comparer, you can achieve the custom sorting in DataGrid. To know more about custom sorting please refer the following link.

However, if you set e.Cancel as true in SortColumnChanging event, DataGrid skip the sorting operation and doesn’t show the Sort Icon in column header.


Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
