Hello Shahzia,

In order to prevent the first row of the Kendo UI Grid from sorting, use the following custom approach in the sortChange event when there is no initial sort or while loading when there is an initial sort:

public sort: SortDescriptor[] = [
  {
    field: 'ProductName',
    dir: 'asc'
  }
];

private loadProducts(): void {
  var arr = this.products.slice(1, this.products.length);
  var sortItems = orderBy(arr, this.sort);
  sortItems.unshift(this.products[0]);

  this.gridView = {
    data: sortItems,
    total: this.products.length
  };
}

In this StackBlitz example, the first row of the Kendo UI Grid is excluded from sorting.

Let me know if this helps or if I can further assist you.

Hetali
