I know the column and the listsortdirection before I refresh the data in the grid, but the column only sorts ascending even when I tag it like the code below.
If _SortType = 0 Then
Me.dgSales(0, _SortCol).Tag = ListSortDirection.Ascending
Me.dgSales(0, _SortCol).Tag = ListSortDirection.Descending
End If
dgSales.SortColumn(_SortCol). I'm using
Public WithEvents dgSales As GridHierDataBoundGrid as my grid.

Hi Prumery,

In DataBoundGrid, you can set these tag properties only through the Model.QueryCellInfo event handler. One way you can acheive this would be to set a flag in the your sort module and check this flag in order to enable the sorting icon for the header cell in the Model.QueryCellInfo.


You can use the DefaultView.Sort property of the underlying datasource in a grid to control the sort direction. Here is a code snippet to show this

DataTable dt = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource as DataTable;

//Ascending order.
//dt.DefaultView.Sort = "[ColumnName] ASC"; // or //dt.DefaultView.Sort = "[ColumnName]"

//descending order
//dt.DefaultView.Sort = "[ColumnName] DESC";

//Cancel the Sorting...
//dt.DefaultView.Sort = "";


Best Regards,
