Hi Thomas,

You can set the "AllowSort" property to false for cancelling the sort operation in the GridDataControl on the Column.

If you want to disable the sorting for all the visible columns then you can use the AllowSort property in "GridDataControl"

AllowSort="False" />

If you want to disable the sorting for a particular visible column then you can use AllowSort property in the "GridDataVisibleColumn"

Please let us know if you need any more details.

I need to group by a fieldDisplayName but i need the groups to appear sorted by another field, fieldID.
FieldID will not be displayed in the columns.

How can i get this group/sorting behavior?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ezequiel,

Yes, this is possible. The default behavior of the grid when you drag and drop is that it will add a Sort Column automatically. So for your scenario, You can do it in some external event,

var view = this.dataGrid.Model.View;
using (view.DeferRefresh())
this.dataGrid.GroupedColumns.Add(new GridDataGroupColumn() { ColumnName = "ShipCountry" });
this.dataGrid.SortColumns.Add(new GridDataSortColumn() { ColumnName = "ShipCity" });

Add the appropriate Group & Sort column in the collections. I also have a sample uploaded in the below location,
