Hi All,

I'm binding my grid with the client-side api.  My data gets populated but by default displays with my ID field in ASC order.  I'd like change this and have it appear in DESC order.  I cannot change the query from the datasource.  I've tried playing around with the mastertableview's fireCommand "sort" but it creates an undesired postback.  There must be a way to do sort on a field right after the initial load.

Thx in advance.

Hello John,


I hope the following video is enough to accomplish client side sorting for radgrid.
RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX - Client-Side Sorting

Thanks for the link Princy.  It is unclear to me from the video if the handling requires me to change my webservice method "ORDER BY" statement.  Unfortunately I can't change that.  If I get my data from a web service do I need to call the PageMethod as shown in video. 

Thanks.

Hi Viz,

When you use WebService binding I assume the methods inside it return collections of data. If you do not want to get the collection already sorted from the datasource, you could try sorting it afterwards, when it is populated, just before returning it from the method. Is this not an option in your scenario?

Best wishes,

hi all:
    my project doesn't use web service to get data. it means I can't use Pagemethods to call the code behind method. is it any way for RadGrid to sort on client side only and also bind data on the client side for the application which doesn't use web services

It should be ok for me to bind data on the server side. I just want to sort data on the client side without posting back to the server. I checked the demo for bind data on the client sides. they use the web services and won't work for my project

Thanks for any help

Hello Helena,

You can either use Page Methods ( without using a Web service ) for client binding, or use AJAX to improve the user experience when posting back to the server on sort. However, you cannot sort a server bound grid on the client-side.

The following demo binds on the client without the use of Web Services:
Programmatic Binding
