I have a Kendo Grid with a column bounded to a enum.  All works fine except when it comes to sorting.  The sorting is performed on the int values of the items, instead of by the text.  i.e.

public enum Test{
    Red = 1,
    Yellow = 2
    Amber = 3
}

Sorting ascending, it outputs: Red, Yellow, Amber.  Instead of Amber, Red, Yellow.
Sorting descending it outputs: Amber, Yellow, Red.  Instead of Yellow, Red, Amber.

How can I get it to sort properly based on the text strings on the left?

Thx!

Hello Mao,

I am afraid that sorting ForeignKey columns by text is currently not supported out of the box and there is no simple workaround that we can suggest.

Hello again,

Implementing this functionality is not planned at this moment, however I would encourage you to submit your suggestion at KendoUI UserVoice so other members of the community can evaluate, comment on and vote for it. Most voted ideas are included in next KendoUI releases.
