The Grid 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 ascending order. The new sort order applies an additional sorting condition to the one previously applied.

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