I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly.  In my constructor I have this:
            HamsGrid.MasterTemplate.SortComparer = new HamsCustomComparer();

That works as expected.  Now I also want the user to be able to sort individual columns if they so choose, so I added two radio buttons to the screen, one called Default the other User.  When User is clicked I want to clear the custom comparer, so I do this:
            HamsGrid.MasterTemplate.SortComparer = null; //line 1807 in code

Then, of course in the Default handler I have:
            HamsGrid.MasterTemplate.SortComparer = new HamsCustomComparer();

Setting it to null is causing an exception (I only have from my call at line 1807 on up):
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hello Ken,

You should not set the Comparer property to Null. Instead, you should set it to the default one in the following way:

this.radGridView1.MasterTemplate.SortComparer = new
            GridViewRowInfoComparer(this.radGridView1.MasterTemplate.SortDescriptors);
Kind regards,
