    I'm trying to apply a custom sorting on a grid datascource in the onsortcommand event
    my datascource is Programmatically set and apparently whenever I try to retrieve it in the event I find the object is assigned to null

    I'm using custom paging on my grid so there's no way to sort the records using the sorting expression without disabling virtual paging first

    can you be guys of any help please??

    Hi Kareem,

    In order to implement custom sorting for RadGrid you need to follow an approach similar to the one illustrated in the following online example.

    You can retrieve the sort expression in the NeedDataSource event and build the appropriate query in order to retrieve the data from the data source.
