Property Value

Type Description

A String object which contains the names of the columns against which data source contents are sorted.


This property accepts a string containing a column name followed by the sort order - “ASC” (ascending) or “DESC” (descending).

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "UnitPrice DESC";

Columns are sorted ascending by default - “ASC” can be omitted.

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "Name";

Multiple columns can be separated by semicolons.

dataSource.DefaultSorting = "UnitPrice DESC; Name";


Assign the DefaultSorting property before binding the XPInstantFeedbackSource to the GridControl or SearchLookUpEdit. Once bound, changing this property throws an exception.
