sorting a grouped grid

If I have a grid sorted by 1+ columns, how can I sort the columns by 2+ columns? I am aware that a user can sort the grid''s detail rows by one column by clicking on the column he or she would like to sort by. Can the grid be sorted by more than column (the sort doesn''t have to be done by the user, I can write code to take the user''s requested sort columns and sort the rows programatically)? Can the user sort the summary rows by 1 or more columns? Thanks

There is currently no UI to allow your user to sort by multiple columns. But you can programatically sort by several columns by adding names to the SortedColumns collection. this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.SortedColumns.Clear(); this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.SortedColumns.Add("Col1", ListSortDirection.Ascending); this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.SortedColumns.Add("Col2", ListSortDirection.Descending);

No, not at this time. The grouping is done based on the sort order of the records. Once the records are grouped the summaries are dependant on that order. In order to be able to sort by summary rows we first need to make some changes to the way sorting is handling inside the grouping engine. We need to add support there for being able to provide a mapping that allows specifying a custom sort order. We have that logged as a feature request but haven''t been able to work on it yet.

Do you have any idea when you''ll get to work on this? It seems like a logical feature of a grouped grid. >No, not at this time. The grouping is done based on the sort order of the records.

We first have to wrap up the 3.0 version and work a bit more on documentation. I am optimistic we should get this feature working in another 3-4 weeks. The feature itsself is a challenge, it is not easy. Stefan

In our 3.2 release, there is a \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\3.2.1.0\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\Grouping\SortBySummaryInCaption sample that shows this can be done.

Is there a property change in the grouping grid in 3.2 release that enables this or can it also be done with 3.0.1.0 ? If its possible to do it with 3.0.1.0, can you please post the example. thanks >In our 3.2 release, there is a \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\3.2.1.0\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\Grouping\SortBySummaryInCaption sample that shows this can be done.

No. There were code changes in the 3.1 release to allow support this feature.
