Hello,

I have a simple RadGrid binded with a WCF Web Service like this:
<ClientSettings>
     <DataBinding Location="~/MyWCFWebService.svc" SelectMethod="GetListAndCount" SortParameterType="String" FilterParameterType="String"></DataBinding>
</ClientSettings>

1) I'm wondering how to set a default sort expression (client-side)?

2) Same question to set a default filter (client-side).

3) I noticed the sort behavior is different between server-side and client-side binding mode.
With a server side binding, when you sort a grid column the header back color is changing.
However with client side binding the header back color stays identical.
How is it possible to have same behavior in both case (header back color changing when the column is sorted)?

Thank you

Hello Mike,

1) To sort, here's the help topic link: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid_sort.html
2) To filter, here's the help topic link: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid_filter.html
3) I don't know how to do it, since when a column is sorted on the server, it gets a class added to each column to mark it as sorted. Possibly calling the RadGrid's repaint method would solve this issue. Here the help topic link: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid-repaint.html

I hope that helps.

Hi Cori,

Thx for your help !
I tested client-side sorting and it works great (I suppose filtering too).

However the repaint() method do not seem to change the header background color.
So I will try to add the css class manually.
