Navneet Sharma's Article for sorting of datagrid columns

Introduction

This article can be used to sort the data according to the columns of a datagrid using windows forms while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environments and functions/methods have been defined here. This code has been inherited and implemented by me after a survey on the web and contains the items useful for sorting datagrid in web applications.

Background

This article can be used to sort the data according to the columns of a datagrid using windows forms while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environments

Using the code

Copy this code to sort columns of a datagrid on a webform while developing from C# application in .Net 3.0 environments. Write down the event named datagrid1_Sorting() in your code by selecting the event from the event list.

Copy the below code and paste it into your application.

//

protected void dgXMLData_Sorting(object sender, GridViewSortEventArgs e)

{
    try
        {
            SortColumn = e.SortExpression; //Only if your sort expression is like your column name
            SortOrder = Convert.ToString(Session["SortOrder"]);
            DV = (DataView) datagrid1.DataSource;
            DV.Sort = SortColumn + " " + SortOrder;
            datagrid1.DataSource = DV;
            datagrid1.DataBind();
            Session["SortOrder"] = "ASC";
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            lblErr.Text = "" + ex.Message + "";
        }

}

Language Used: C#, ASP.Net

Platforms: Win XP Professional with SP 2, .Net 3.0
