Thanks for reporting this. Unfortunately, it turns out that there is no good way to work around that issue for Beta 2. I've been thinking about the best way to tackle the problem and I found a good solution in our ASP.NET grid. We can add a public RadGridView.IsCustomSortingAllowed
property that will tell us if the RadGridView
client code will do the sorting itself. This way our CanSort()
logic can take advantage on the column data type if and only if the IsCustomSortingAllowed
property is false. What do you think?
By the way, I have updated your Telerik points.
