Hello! 

I'm trying to figure out how to get the contents of my grid to sort by a property member that is not exposed to the UI via a column. The item source for my grid comes from a collection view defined on my ViewModel. This collection view has sort descriptors defined in C#, one of which is to sort by a boolean property that is not bound to a column on the grid, but that sort descriptor is not honored at run-time. 

 

Any assistance is appreciated.

Hello Alex,

I tried to replicate the setup you described in a small sample project, however, the sort descriptor I've applied to the collectionview is respected at my end even though it does not correspond to a column bound to the RadGridView control.

Can you please have a look at the attached project and let me know if I'm missing something of importance? I will be awaiting your reply.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I must confess that my problem was more fundamental than I originally believed, and I feel pretty stupid about it. 

Apparently, sorting by a boolean value did not behave as I thought it would. I was having my code sort in descending order thinking "true" values would be on top, but that is not the case. I apologize for this misunderstanding. My problem has been solved.
