Name Description

Sorts the field in ascending order.


Sorts the field in descending order.


Data within the PivotGridControl is always sorted against the fields displayed within Column Header Area and Row Header Area (by default, in ascending order). Use the SortOrder property of these fields to change the current sort order. For other fields, changing the SortOrder property value has no effect on data representation until these fields are placed within the Column Header Area or Row Header Area.

You can also use the PivotGridFieldBase.ChangeSortOrder (synchronous) and PivotGridControl.ChangeFieldSortOrderAsync (asynchronous) methods to toggle a field sort order.

To respond to a field’s sort order being changed, handle the PivotGridControl.GridLayout event.
