Hi,

Is it possible to capture the event when a grid is sorted and to know on which column it was sorted by?

I know the dataBound event fires, but I would also like to know if there's a way to tell if that's a sort as opposed to anything else.

+1. Really need this to identify whether the grid was sorted, paginated, filtered. As of now there is no  way to identify it. Is there a workaround for this?

+1, hopefully bumping this thread up

I could really use an event callback for the "sort" event for a grid since I want to re-initalize some custom HTML-based click handlers that go away once the grid is sorted (and I assume the HTML objects are re-created)

Hello Michael,


There is no sort event available in the dataSource. This suggestion is posted in our user voice portal. If you consider that it will be useful addition to the framework, you could place your vote there. If it becomes popular among the community, we will consider to implement it in future releases.

As for the exact case, you could use the sort() method of the dataSource to retrieve the current sort configuration and compare it will the previous one. For example a JS variable could be used to store the previous sort configuration.

I hope this information helps.

Hey Dimiter, 

Thanks for your response. It looks like the Data Bount Event might be able to help with this. It looks like that event fires every time the data is drawn or re-drawn to the DOM, which is pretty much what I'm looking for.

Specifically, I'm looking for a way to apply custom CSS to individual cells in the grid in such a way that would be pretty hard to do via Kendo templates. This seems like the best way to do it, just re-apply the CSS everytime the data is drawn

Thanks,
Mike
