Hi Team,

I want to sort groups based on date string such that it is date type sort and not string sort.

How to achieve it for groups and one of the column in the grid?
Thanks,
Manoj Verma.

Hi Manoj,

Sorting a string as it were date is not possible because strings in .NET are only sorted lexicographically. In this case your scenario is not achievable unless you convert the column type to datetime.
