    Hello, I a web page with a telerik gridview control. For one of the columns, I would like for the user to be able to sort on the column. I can do the sorting in my C# code behind file. However, is their a way to get postback when someone presses the gridview header for the column? You see if I can get postback that way, then I can sort the data and rebid the grid with the sorted data.

    Hi Raymond,

    RadGrid has a property  AllowSorting="true" which sorts the column on click of the column header. In case you want to have a postback, you can have an AjaxRequest set on client-side columnclick event and handle the sort manually. Please take a look at the following code snippet.

    <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server" OnAjaxRequest="RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest">
    <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" >
            <ClientEvents OnColumnClick="OnColumnClick" />

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnColumnClick(sender, args) {
            var ajax = $find("<%=RadAjaxManager1.ClientID %>").ajaxRequest();

    protected void RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.AjaxRequestEventArgs e)
    protected void SortGrid()
       // code to Sort the gird
