Hello Community,

  I have a problem with the radGrid from Q3/2011 Version. On client Java script I have to get the actual sort expression of the grid. As the documentation stated, I used the following code:
var grid = $find ( ... gridClientId... )
 
// Grid is found, so get the sort expression
var masterTableView = grid.get_masterTableView();
var sortExpressions = masterTableView.get_sortExpressions();
But sortExpression is always empty even if my grid is definitely sorted by one column.

In the documentation I found the Note: The RadGrid get_sortExpressions() property is meaningful only in case the RadGrid control is bound client-side.

This I interpret, that, if the grids data is not bound from client side, I cannot get the sort expression this way.

My grid is bound to an ObjectDataSource. So how can I get the sortExpression?

Greetings
  Thomas

Hi,

The sorting expressions could only be accessed on the client if Client-side binding for the RadGrid is used. You can access it from server side as shown below.
C#:
string sort = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetColumn("UniqueName").SortExpression.ToString();

Thanks,
Shinu.
