hey everyone

I have a RadComboBox in which i want items to sort in ascending order.this is my combobox--
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="cmbName" runat="server" Skin="Hay" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
                                Height="60px" Width="204px" DataTextField="CustomerName" MarkFirstMatch="true"
                                DataValueField="CustomerId" AllowCustomText="true" EmptyMessage="Please select a Name"
                                OnSelectedIndexChanged="cmbName_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true" ToolTip="Select your Name"
                                CausesValidation="false" Sort="Ascending" SortCaseSensitive="true">
                            </telerik:RadComboBox>
But its not working,items does'nt get sorted.It comes as it is in data base table.Does this need something to be written in codebehind too?...

Thanks
Amit

Hello Amit,


Call the SortItems() method of the combobox or Items.Sort() method of the items collection.
protected void RadComboBox1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
{       
   RadComboBox1.Items.Sort();
}

Why do you have to bind to an event to sort a combo box? Is this really necessary when you have a  property?

Hi Stephen,

Setting the sort property alone wont help. To enable sorting you need to:

1. Set the Sort property. Its value can be either Ascending, Descending or None.
2. Call the SortItems() method of the RadComboBox or Items.Sort() method of the items collection.

Thanks,
Shinu.
