    I have a RadGrid in which a column represents the status. I display a label for the status.
    When the user clicks on the column I want the data to be sorted on a field (priority) that is not displayed. This priority-field is part of the datatable attached to the grid.
    Is this possible and how do I achieve this?

    Hi Paul,

    This is definitely possible. Try following these steps to create custom sorting based off different criteria than the data bound to the column clicked on. You will be editing the SortCommand event handler to apply your specific sorting.

    Good luck,
    Master Chief
