public bool AllowSort { get; set; }
Public Property AllowSort As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description

true, to allow end-users to sort data; otherwise, false.



This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

End-users can sort data by tapping a column header or tapping Sort Ascending or Sort Descending in the menu that appears when they touch and hold a column cell or header. If the AllowSort property is set to true, both these methods are available. Otherwise, end-users cannot apply data sorting.

To override the default behavior specified by the grid's AllowSort property for an individual column, use the GridColumn.AllowSort property of the corresponding column object.
