Hi All,

I will be highly obliged if you could solve my issue.

The issue which I am facing that is about the sorting order of the Special Chars, Numbers and Alphbets.

I think default sorting is Special Chars -> Numbers -> Alphbets in Ascending order. Suppose I have below data


if we sort the above data in c# in ascending order then we will get the following result


But as per my requirement , I want the sorting to be Numbers -> Special Chars ->Alphabets

The above result should come as


And these results I am displaying in the DataGrid, So I want to change the way of default sorting of the grid so that the above result can be achieved.

Thanks in advance.

To talk about sorting, you really need to indicate what is the data set, what is used for its container (collection), what library type are you using, and so on.

Thanks Sergey for quick response.
To clarify your doubt , I am getting data from service in array in the sorted order (Order is Numeric->Special Chars -> Alphabets) and When I am binding this array to my grid in which the sorting is ON by default then it automatically sorts the data in the order Special Chars-> Numbers -> Alphabets

Use the Link OrderBy method - it allows you to specify the sort order for the strings yourself:[^]
