when talking about Telerik Reporting means that the data is sorted/filtered by the Reporting engine after it has been retrieved from the data source. This is done by setting a new sorting/filtering rule to the data item:
var sorting1 =
sorting1.Direction = Telerik.Reporting.SortDirection.Asc;
on the other hand means that the data is sorted by the data source provider and the Reporting engine receives it already sorted. This is best shown when using SQL server and sorting the data on the SQL server by using a ORDER BY
clause. Same with filtering and the WHERE
Sorting via action is performed client-side when considering the definition explained above.
