TreeViewControl.SortMode Property

Gets or sets how the TreeViewControl sorts its data. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v20.2.dll

Declaration

public ColumnSortMode SortMode { get; set; }
Public Property SortMode As ColumnSortMode

Property Value

Type Description
ColumnSortMode

The sort mode.

Available values:

Name Description
Default

Sorts the column's data according to the type of the editor assigned to the column.

The Default option is equivalent to DisplayText for columns that use LookUpEdit, ImageComboBoxEdit and HypertextLabel (RepositoryItemHypertextLabel) in-place editors.

The Default option is equivalent to Value for other columns. Note that for certain editors (TextEdit, ComboBoxEdit, etc) the edit values match the display values.

Value

Sorts the column's data by the column's edit values (these are synchronized with the bound data source's values).

DisplayText

Sorts the column's data by the column's display text (the strings displayed within the column's cells).

Custom

Enables custom sorting of a column's data. To implement custom sorting, handle the ColumnView.CustomColumnSort event in the GridControl, and the TreeList.CompareNodeValues event in the TreeList.

In the GridControl, the Custom mode also enables custom grouping of rows when grouping is applied against the current column. To implement custom grouping, handle the GridView.CustomColumnGroup event.

Remarks

The SortMode property specifies the algorithm used to sort TreeViewControl data (by display text, edit value, or a custom sorting algorithm).

Set the SortMode property to Custom and handle the CustomNodeSort event to apply custom logic to sort data.
