I have a grouping grid with number of decimal expression column. I have formatted the cell to "#,###;(#,###);-" . The problem is that when i try to sort these column, it seems to sort it as a string and not as decimals. Is there a way to resolve this? Below I have listed the function that adds to expression field. private void AddExpressionField(string fieldName, string expression) { ExpressionFieldDescriptor ed = new ExpressionFieldDescriptor(fieldName,expression,typeof(decimal)); gridPositionBrowser.TableDescriptor.ExpressionFields.Add(ed); GridColumnDescriptor columnDescriptor = new GridColumnDescriptor(fieldName); columnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.Format = "#,##0;(#,##0);-"; columnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyCell.HorizontalAlignment = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridHorizontalAlignment.Right; columnDescriptor.AllowGroupByColumn = false; gridPositionBrowser.TableDescriptor.Columns.Add(columnDescriptor); }

You can work around it handling the sort yourself using a custom comparer. Here is a little sample. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GGC_Expression_efe49d4d.zip

Is this expected to be fixed in any realease soon? Also, do you know if sorting of summary rows will be supported any time soon? is there a workaround? I need to sort on summary rows in a grouped grid. If it will not be supported by syncfusion anytime soon, i may have to write a custom workflow, as the clients need it as a top priority. >You can work around it handling the sort yourself using a custom comparer.

Actually, this sorting problem is corrected in the code base we are running in house. I see the problem with but not
