True, to support the OLAP server's OrderBy attribute; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to SortUsingDiscoverXmlMetadata
WinForms Controls PivotGridControl
ASP.NET Controls and MVC Extensions ASPxPivotGrid
Reporting XRPivotGrid


This property is in effect when the SortMode propety is set to Default.

If the SortUsingDiscoverXmlMetadata is set to true, the Pivot Grid sends a special DISCOVER_XML_METADATA request to get an actual attribute value and use this information to sort data.

This is not the default behavior because of backward compatibility. However, you should enable it to support the OLAP server's OrderBy attribute.
