Gets or sets whether an end-user can sort data. This is a dependency property.
NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.Core
true, to allow an end-user to sort data; otherwise, false.
End-users are allowed to sort data if the view’s AllowSorting property is set to true. Individual columns provide the ColumnBase.AllowSorting property, allowing the default behavior specified by the view to be overridden. Setting this property to ‘True’ or ‘False’ overrides the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent an end-user from sorting data by the values of specific columns.
If a column’s ColumnBase.AllowSorting property is set to ‘Default’, the ability to sort data by its values is controlled by the view’s AllowSorting property. In this instance, to obtain whether an end-user can sort data by the current column, use the ColumnBase.ActualAllowSorting property.
If the AllowSorting property is set to false, the grid does not synchronise its sorting and grouping with the ICollectionView.
