Hello, I have a grid with grouped columns and I want to sort my grid using that group. This is my grid and the code that generates it:

    var GroupedCols = new List<string>() { "IdProductTransactionHeader" };

<ej-grid id="GridResultAllPayments" locale="@(System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name)" allow-selection="false" allow-sorting="true" allow-grouping="true" action-complete="Complete"
         allow-filtering="true" allow-multiple-exporting="true" toolbar-click="toolbarClick1" databound="dataBound">
    <e-toolbar-settings show-toolbar="true" toolbar-items=@(new List<string>() {"excelExport" })></e-toolbar-settings>
    <e-group-settings caption-format="#captionTemplate" show-drop-area="false" show-grouped-column="false" grouped-columns="GroupedCols"></e-group-settings>
    <e-filter-settings filter-type="Excel" />
    <e-datamanager adaptor="UrlAdaptor" url="/Products/GetAllPaymentsPerProduct?idProduct=@(ViewBag.IdProduct)&idProductType=@ViewBag.IdProductType"></e-datamanager>
        <e-column field="IdProductTransactionHeader" header-text="ProductTransactionHeader"></e-column>
        <e-column field="ValueDate" header-text="@Localizer["Value date"].Value" text-align="Left" format="{0:d}" enable-group-by-format="true"
                  tooltip="@Localizer["Value date"].Value (@Bancavalor.Resources.MyResources.LocalFormatDate)"></e-column>
        <e-column field="TransactDate" header-text="@Localizer["Transact date"].Value" text-align="Left" format="{0:d}"
                  tooltip="@Localizer["Transact date"].Value (@Bancavalor.Resources.MyResources.LocalFormatDate)"></e-column>
        <e-column field="TransactAmount" header-text="@Localizer["Transaction amount"].Value" text-align="Right" format="{0:N2}"></e-column>
        <e-column field="ClientName" header-text="@Localizer["Client"].Value"></e-column>
        <e-column field="IdTransactType" header-text="@Localizer["Transact type"].Value" text-align="Left" template-id="#transTemplate" format="{0:N2}"></e-column>
        <e-column field="CreationDate" header-text="@Localizer["Creation date"].Value" text-align="Left" format="{0:@Bancavalor.Resources.MyResources.GridFormatDate}"
                  tooltip="@Localizer["Creation date"].Value (@Bancavalor.Resources.MyResources.LocalFormatDate)"></e-column>
        <e-summary-row title="Total" show-caption-summary="true" show-total-summary="true">
                <e-summary-column summary-type="Sum" format="{0:N2}" display-column="TransactAmount" datamember="TransactAmount" />

<script id="captionTemplate" type="text/x-jsrender">
    <div class="row col-md-12">
        <div class="col-md-6">
        <div class="col-md-6">

So, I want to sort my grid based on the column "Fecha valor" but in a descending way, I mean first 19/11/2019 then 20/10/2019 and finally 20/9/2019, dates are format in dd-MM-yyyy.

Hi Neider, 

Query#:- I have a grid with grouped columns and I want to sort my grid using that group. 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 

We have checked your query and when we perform Grouping by default Sorting operation will take placed based on the Grouped columns. In the below example, we have grouped the columns with format dd-MM-YYYY, Sorting has been worked based on that. In the below example, OrderDate  has been Grouped with sorted order as like(22/10) and (18/02) 
Refer to the screenshot:- 
Refer to the sample Link:- 

If we misunderstood your query, please get back to us with further details.

I already checked it but I want to sort it in a descending way (from recent dates to old dates), in the example that you show me the grid is sorted ascendingly (look the years). Thanks

Hi Neider,  

We have prepared sample with Grouped column with sorted order “Descending” by default but the values are sorted on Descending with Month (22/10/1991) ,(15/5/1991) and (04/04/1991)
