how to set child table sorting property in a hierarchical grid

Hi, This is actually a continuation on my previous question. In a hierarchical grid, is that possible for me to define the sorting property for a childtable, so it will always show in a grid in a sorted way? Especially after I add new rows to the child table. Thanks a lot Chris

You can try handling the RowsExpanded and dynamically setting the sort order getting the proper information from the GridBoundRecordState.
private void grid_RowExpanded(object sender, GridRowEventArgs e)
{
	GridBoundRecordState rs = this.grid.Binder.GetRecordStateAtRowIndex(e.RowIndex);
	if(rs.HasChildList)
	{
		rs = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.GetRecordStateAtRowIndex(e.RowIndex + 1);
		DataView dv = ((CurrencyManager)rs.ListManager).List as DataView;
		if(dv != null)
		{
			dv.Sort = dv.Table.Columns[1].ColumnName + " Desc";
		}
	}
}
