How to use CollectionViewAdv ?

I wanted a sortable collection like CollectionViewSource in Silverlight and UWP doesn't have one. I found SF CollectionViewAdv. It has all the right params in the intellisense but the documentation doesn't give any meaningful details.

so I just wrote at best guess:

     dataView = new CollectionViewAdv(data);
     lst.ItemsSource = dataView;

and although the view created ok, on the second statement I got nullRef exception without any idea what happened.

Anyone uses it? whats the correct use? or is there another collection for that?

I need to write something like :

    dataView.SortDescriptions.Add(new SortDescription("SOMEPROP", ListSortDirection.Ascending));

Hi Volodymyr, 

Thank you for contact Syncfusion support. 

We are having Syncfusion.data.uwp for doing data operations needed for SfDataGrid. You can use it in your application if it suits your needs. As this is internal view of SfDataGrid, you can’t find the documentation for the same. Please find the getting started code snippet for doing sorting and grouping using QueryableCollection. 

QueryableCollectionView view = new QueryableCollectionView(viewM.Orders); 
view.SortDescriptions.Add(new SortDescription() { PropertyName = "OrderID", Direction= ListSortDirection.Descending }); 
view.GroupDescriptions.Add(new PropertyGroupDescription() { PropertyName = "OrderID" }); 
view.Filter = FilterRecord; 
//Get the ordered information when grouping not applied 
//Get the ordered information when grouping applied 
//Get the groups list when 

We have attached the example application for you reference. You can able to download it from the below link.

Hello Maxima,

Thank you so much for your kind reply! We have a few options where you can write a review: Visual Studio, Stack Overflow, or Facebook are all excellent choices.

Is it possible for you to provide your full name and company to associate and quote you on our website with the complimentary statement you made?
