I'm using a GridDataBoundGrid. For this particular grid, it makes sense to sort numerically on one of the columns. When I sort on the column, however, the results are baffling; the column isn't sorted numerically, and it isn't sorted alphabetically.

Is there an option to make a column sort numerically? I've seen several posts here in the forum which discuss how to apply a custom sort order to a column. If necessary, I will do that. However, sorting numerically seems pretty basic, and I'm wondering if there's a property for that.

By default the columns sorts for both text data and numeric value. Please refer the Sort by Display Member Demo from the dashboard where sorting is performed for text and numeric and also for Display member also.

Sample location:
{installed drive}\Users\{UserName}\AppData\Local\Syncfusion\EssentialStudio\{Version}\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\2.0\Data Bound\Sort By DisplayMember Demo

Please have a look at the preceding sample and if still the issue exists, could you please try reproducing it in the above sample or send us the reproducing steps so that we could sort out the cause of the issue and provide you a solution?
