PivotGridOptionsCustomization.AllowSort Property

Gets or sets whether end-users can change the sort order of fields.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.PivotGrid.v21.2.Core.dll


public bool AllowSort { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true to allow end-users to change the sort order of fields; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to AllowSort
WinForms Controls PivotGridControl
Reporting XRPivotGrid
ASP.NET MVC Extensions MVCxPivotGrid
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls ASPxPivotGrid


If the AllowSort property is set to false, the sort glyphs are not displayed within field headers thus preventing end-users from changing the sort order of fields. Individual fields however have a PivotGridFieldOptions.AllowSort property which takes priority over the pivot grid’s AllowSort property.

The sort order of fields can also be changed via code using their PivotGridFieldBase.SortOrder property.
