How to apply sorting property


How to apply sorting in Excel file using Syncfusion xlsio engine.
I have attached the included excel sorting file.

ExcelEngine oengine = new ExcelEngine();
IApplication oApp = oengine.Excel;
oApp.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2007;
IWorkbook oWorkbook  =  oApp.Workbooks.Create(1);
IWorksheets osheets = oWorkbook.Worksheets;
IWorksheet  osheet = osheets .Worksheets[0];

IDataSort sorter = oWorkbook .CreateDataSorter();
1) First file related code

sorter.SortRange = osheets.Range["D1:D26"];
sortField = sorter.SortFields.Add(4, SortOn.Values, OrderBy.Descending);
sorter.Algorithm = SortingAlgorithms.QuickSort;    

2) Second file related code

sorter.SortRange = osheets.Range["E2:E10"];
 sortField = sorter.SortFields.Add(oRange2007.Column, SortOn.CellColor, OrderBy.OnBottom);
 sortField.Color = Windows.UI.Color.FromArgb(0, 255, 0, 0);

This code is run successfully create sorting property . but In first file ascending/descending order is not set. and second file cell color color value is not set.

Hi Sharad, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

So please confirm us whether you have faced the same issue in your side. if no, kindly share us the detailed information of the issue you have faced in your side.

My code successfully create sorting property but Ascending/descending order is not set.

Similarly in Top10 AutoFilter property percent value is not.
