How can I restrict the sorting of the particular column on Header click ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridDataBoundGrid(Classic) |

We can dynamically set the SortBehavior in the CellClick event (or CellDoubleClick event) to restrict the sorting of a particular column. Please refer the following code snippet to set the SortBehavior of a particular Column.


this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CellClick += new GridCellClickEventHandler(gridDataBoundGrid1_CellClick);

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CellClick(object sender, GridCellClickEventArgs e)


if((e.ColIndex == 1 || e.ColIndex == 3)

//sort only 1 & 3

&& e.RowIndex == 0)

this.gridDataBoundGrid1.SortBehavior = GridSortBehavior.SingleClick;


this.gridDataBoundGrid1.SortBehavior = GridSortBehavior.None;



Private Sub GridDataBoundGrid1_CellClick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCellClickEventArgs) Handles GridDataBoundGrid1.CellClick

''sort only 1 & 3

If (e.ColIndex = 1 OrElse e.ColIndex = 3) AndAlso e.RowIndex = 0 Then

Me.GridDataBoundGrid1.SortBehavior = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSortBehavior.SingleClick


Me.GridDataBoundGrid1.SortBehavior = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSortBehavior.None

End If

End Sub
