    I am trying to figure out a way that I can manually sort a radlistview. The problem I have is that the database does not contain the field I want to sort by. The application allows the user to determine the sort of the items in an order they determine. I could not find a way to manually add/remove items from the radlistview instead of binding to the DB, or a way to create a custom field that I can set after the data as loaded to sort on.

    Any recommendations?

    The scenario is there are two controls on the page both list views, one is a list of photo thumbnails, the other is a list of photos selected. As the user selects the thumbnails I want the order in the second list to be the order that they picked the photos.

    Hello Robert,

    A possible way to achieve this will be to introduce a object which to hold the needed data and the order in which the items are selected. Then you should bind the second ListView to a collection of those object and sort it on the order field.

    All the best,
