Object Type Path to AllowSort
GridColumn
.OptionsColumn.AllowSort
LayoutViewColumn
.OptionsColumn.AllowSort
BandedGridColumn
.OptionsColumn.AllowSort

Remarks

The DefaultBoolean.Default value assigned to the AllowSort property is interpreted differently, based on the type of the underlying data:

A sortable column’s values can be sorted in code regardless of the AllowSort property’s value. To do this, use the column’s GridColumn.SortIndex property.

Note

Data grouping requires sorting to be applied. So, disabling data sorting results in disabling grouping.
