I have a foreign key column in my grid.
   columns.ForeignKey(c => c.ManagerId, (SelectList)ViewData["ManagerIdSource"]);

It sorts by the default Guid and not by the name.
Any way I can achieve this ?

If not supported, is this feature expected anytime soon from Telerik ?

Hi Pantulu,

Sorting by text is not supported as the data source will not have all the data (for more information you can check the related item in Kendo UI UserVoice). Possible solution is shown in the following demo in our documentation:

Another option which is valid for the MVC wrappers is to add the custom field to the ViewModel and populate it either on the server side or on the client side after the data is loaded (e.g. DataBound event).
