public string DefaultSorting { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

The string which contains the column name(s) against which data source contents are sorted and the sort order(s).


This property accepts a string containing a column name followed by the sort order - “ASC” (ascending) or “DESC” (descending).

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "UnitPrice DESC";

Columns are sorted ascending by default - “ASC” can be omitted.

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "Name";

Multiple columns can be separated by semicolons.

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "UnitPrice DESC; Name";


The DefaultSorting property must be specified before the PLinqInstantFeedbackSource is bound to a data-aware control (e.g. DXGrid).
