Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A String value that specifies the name of a data field which should be used by this column to perform sorting and/or filtering.


By default, any TreeListColumn sorts and filters TreeList data by the values this column displays. By using the FieldNameSort property, you can change this behavior and force a column to sort and filter data by another data field. The animation below illustrates the Tree List with an empty unbound column. A user can click this column’s header to apply data sorting by a data field associated with the first column.

TreeList - Change Filter Field

To be able to view values of this custom FieldNameSort field within a column’s filter dropdown menu, set the column’s TreeListOptionsColumnFilter.FilterBySortField property to DefaultBoolean.True.
