     We're trying to use foreign key columns in the MVC grid and came to the realization it sorts on the numeric ID value rather than the foreign table text value. Telerik has mentioned there is no way for them to implement a fix, but our group was wondering if anyone else has come up with a work-around or simple fix to accomplish this.

    Hi Mike,

    Sort the grid before you populate it with data. Or create ViewModel which the grid can sort.
