    I tried to extend my grid with custom columns.
    This looks good - but it does not sort for that column.

    You can check this out using your own example at

    It first looks like it does something - BUT - all "Creation Date" and "Owner" have the same value (not so good to proof sorting).
    Anyhow - if you simply change the owner by adding an iteration between Telerik and Adam - you will see that sorting this column,
    always sorts by name.

    So I guess
    a.) Something is missing in the sample
    b.) There is problem with custom column sorting
    c.) I've overseen something (I don't hope so - I tried a lot)

    Hi Manfred,

    We will provide a way to sort custom columns in the grid for the RadControls Q2 2009 service pack release. We have added a new server event (GridPopulating), which you can use to implement sorting for the custom grid columns. The event arguments will include information about sorting. We will also update the CustomGridColumns example to provide an example of the sorting code you will need to add to your project.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
