Name Type Description
column GridColumn

A GridColumn object that represents the column within the grid.

sortedOrder ColumnSortOrder

A ColumnSortOrder enumeration value that specifies the column’s sort order.


The DXGrid control allows data sorting by multiple columns. Any previous sorting is not cleared when calling the SortBy method.

If the grid’s data isn’t sorted by the specified column, the SortBy method sorts data by its values in the specified order. The new sort order applies an additional sorting condition to the one previously applied. The grid creates a new GridSortInfo object with the specified settings and appends it to the GridControl.SortInfo collection.

End-users are allowed to sort data if the view’s DataViewBase.AllowSorting property is set to true.
