Is it possible to add SortExpression property? Like;
<telerik:PivotGridRowField DataField="ITEMNAME" Caption="Ürün Adı" UniqueName="ITEMNAME" ZoneIndex="4" SortExpression="ItemId">
</telerik:PivotGridRowField>

and default sort for the PivotGrid does not function if it does not binded to a DataField property.
For example; I did not bind ItemId to a RowField but would like to have default sort on that field. I think we need something like AdditionalDataFieldNames property.

<SortExpressions>
    <telerik:PivotGridSortExpression FieldName="ItemId" SortOrder="Ascending" />
</SortExpressions>

You know, RadGrid has this functionality.

PS:Attached screen shot shows my problem.

TIA

Hello, 

The desired functionality could not be achieved because in order to sort a particular field it should be included in the data. The reason behind this is because the RadPivotGrid engine calculates based on the supplied data.

All the best,

I also needed to customize the sort of the Row Header.  Since I could not connect a field that contained the right sort sequence to the Row Header DataField, I included the sort sequence as the beginning character in the Row Header Value, then removed the sort sequence during PivotGrid_CellDataBound.
        protected void MyPivotGrid_CellDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.PivotGridCellDataBoundEventArgs e)
        {
            // Format RowHeader Cell (custom sort cheat by including sort number in Measure field)
            if (e.Cell is PivotGridRowHeaderCell)
            {
                PivotGridRowHeaderCell cell = e.Cell as PivotGridRowHeaderCell;
                cell.Text = cell.Text.Remove(0, 2);
            }
}
