Public Property AllowSort As Boolean

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
ASP.NET Controls and MVC Extensions ASPxPivotGrid
Reporting XRPivotGrid


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.
