This example shows how to apply data sorting and grouping in XAML.

The image below shows the result:

using System.ComponentModel;
using DevExpress.Xpf.Grid;

public Window1() {
    InitializeComponent();
    grid.DataSource =
        new dsNwindProductsTableAdapters.ProductsTableAdapter().GetData();
    CreateSortInfo(grid);
}
private void CreateSortInfo(GridControl grid) {
    grid.SortInfo.Add(new GridSortInfo("UnitPrice", ListSortDirection.Descending));
    grid.SortInfo.Add(new GridSortInfo("ProductName", ListSortDirection.Ascending));
    grid.GroupCount = 1;
}
