Hello, I'm wondering if there is a way to inject a function into the kendo grid to sort a column after page load.

My issue is we are using MVC fluent wrappers to build the site and the option I need isn't available (compare), and I want to know if I can inject a compare method into the column in question.
I've tried setting
$("#ReportsGrid").data("kendoGrid").columns[3].sortable.compare

but that doesn't affect anything at run time.

Any ideas?

Hi Andrew,

I am afraid that setting the columns.sortable.compare function is not supported in MVC wrappers. The recommended approach in your case is to enable the server sorting (serverOperations are enabled by default) and implement your custom sorting logic in the controller.
