    I am passing an IEnumerable of viewmodels to the grid at load time.  My columns are bound to properties on the viewmodels, which are themselves different viewmodels.  Since I am not reading the data via AJAX, I would like to have the data sorted on the client-side.  I have .Sortable() called on the grid and .ServerOperation(false) called on the DataSource.  When I mouse over the column header, my browser displays a URL like: http://mysite/controller/action?gridName-sort=ColumnName-asc  When I click on the column header, the sort arrow appears, changes, or disappears, but the data is not reordered.  I tried implementing IComparable and IComparable<T> on my column viewmodel on a suggestion from another user, but this does not appear to work.  Can client-side sorting work in this scenario?  If so, what do I need to do?

    Hello Brian,

    You can try implementing the custom compare function for client side, sorting. The relevant documentation is here, please check it out and let me know if it helps:
