Hi,

We have a RadGridView with some custom column implementations, changeing the original value bound to this columns. Now we have the problem, that the default sort mechanism sorts the rows with the original values from the data source, but it should be sorted with the displayed column values. I also can not use the expression sort descriptors, I have no access to the displayed type at compoleing time.

Is there a way to change this behavior?

Thanks for help,
Michael

Hello,

Sorting is a data operation and is performed by LINQ. Sorting can only be done on data values. You can't sort something which is not data, i.e. is not in the data source of the grid.

All the best,
