    I have a grid and in that i have by default sorting by date desc and default group by by date and i is by default expended. The problem is that the sorting order is desc of date but the date is only taking the date and the month part in the not measuring by the sorting.
    Please see the attachment.

    I have used following code for sorting and grouping

     <SortExpressions >
                                <telerik:GridSortExpression FieldName="UpdatedDate" SortOrder="Descending"/>
                                        <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="UpdatedDate" SortOrder="Descending"  FormatString="{0:yy/mm/dd}" />
                                        <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="UpdatedDate" />
                                <asp:Label Text='<%#String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yy}", Eval("UpdatedDate"))%>' runat="server"
                                    ID="lblDate" Style="font-weight: bold; color: Black;"></asp:Label>

    Hello Manish,

    I have created a sample RadGrid web site using the provided code sample. On my side the sorting works as expected and takes into account the year too. Could you please ensure that your DataField's type is System.DateTime and not System.String? Please check out the attached application and try to distinguish the crucial differences between our projects.

    Hi Eyup,

    Thanks for your answer but i got the problem and it was that i was convert the date in database like Convert(string(10),updateddate,101)
    so it was converting as string but i need to show it as i convert mm/dd/yyyy now i have made a solution i add another column and i make sorting with date and it was in date format  when i have to show the date in the groupby heading than shows converted date and in the shorting column i used the simple date column.

    Thanks for your reply.
