.OptionsCustomization .AllowSort


In Layout View, end-users can sort data by clicking the Field Sort Button. If the AllowSort option sis set to true, data sorting is enabled. In this instance, it’s possible to prevent data sorting for specific card fields (columns) via the OptionsColumn.AllowSort option.

If the AllowSort property is set to false, Field Sort Button are hidden, so end-users cannot change the sort order. However, data can still be sorted in code.

For information on how end-users can sort data, see End-User Capabilities: Sorting.
