Is if possible to sort a range of cells?

Currently this is not supported for an abritrary ranges. Sorting will be enhanced in future releases. In the next patch, SortByColumn will be overloaded to allow arbitrary number of frozen rows to remain fixed at the top of the grid. Further enhancements will be in future releases.

There is currently no announced date for the next patch release. If you need to ability to fix multiple header rows during a sort, and have access to the source code, you can add the method below in the GridData.cs file where the other SortByColumn methods appear.
/// Sorts tha data object by the specified column.
/// The column that holds the key for sorting this object.
/// The sort direction: asceding or descending
/// You should pass in GridModel.Rows.HeaderCount to specify if there are additional headers 
/// displayed in the grid that should not be sorted.
public void SortByColumn(int colIndex, ListSortDirection direction, int extraHeaderCount)
	int hc = extraHeaderCount+2;
	ArrayList sortArray = new ArrayList();
	int count = RowCount-extraHeaderCount;
	for (int n = 0; n < count; n++)
	GridColumnSorter sorter = new GridColumnSorter(colIndex+1, direction, sortArray);
	for (int n = 0; n < sortArray.Count; n++)
		sfTable.Rows[n+hc] = sortArray[n];

What if I do not have fixed headers but want to sort complete rows by one column. Can I do this currently? Scott

Scott, I don't understand what you want. Can you give some more details or a sample? Clay
