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

Since group rows are always sorted, data grouping requires data sorting. Sorting applied to group columns takes priority over other columns. To group data by one column in XAML, do the following:

The image below shows the result:


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

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