how to catch sorting events in databoundgrid?

hi, I have got an Expand Grid and i currently allow a single-click sorting on column header. However, everytime i click on the header, all the nodes of my grid collapsed which makes it very annoying. I tried to catch the header clicking event in cell click (when rowIndex == 0) and assign a flag to cancel RowCollapsing event (e.Cancel = m_sorting ,where m_sorting set to true after column header click), but it doesn''t work. I wonder if there''s any event handling specifically designed for sorting? many thanks

The problem is that when the Sort is done using the DataView (which is how the GridDataBoundGrid sorts things), it triggers a ListChanged event with type Reset. This Reset is what forces the grid to collapse the nodes. If you use the 2.0 GroupdingGridControl, this will not be a problem. The nodes will not collapse when you sort. If you want try to handle this in the GridDataBoundGrid, it does take some effort. Here is a sample. It adds a new property in a derived grid that adds away to feeze the screen painting through a Win32 API call. This techique is discussed in one of our Windows Forms FAQ, http://www.syncfusion.com/faq/winforms/search/637.asp
