Type Description

An asynchronous operation that returns true in case of success.


The SetFieldSortingAsync method is asynchronous. It starts executing the related operation in a background thread, and immediately returns control. The primary UI thread is not blocked, allowing the application to continue responding to end-user actions. For more information about the asynchronous mode, see Asynchronous Mode.

If you need to perform specific actions after this operation is completed, use another overload of the SetFieldSortingAsync method that takes the asyncCompleted parameter, and pass a delegate that performs the required actions as this parameter.

The field sort order is specified by the PivotGridField.SortOrder property. To toggle the field sort order, use the PivotGridField.ChangeSortOrder (synchronous) or PivotGridControl.ChangeFieldSortOrderAsync (asynchronous) method.
