Hi Kennith,

Currently, there is no way to sort the items in the column chooser. However, I will add this as a feature request and we will consider it when planning our upcoming releases. Your Telerik points have been updated accordingly.

Kind regards,
Jack

Is this available yet? I see 2 similar tickets, both marked as completed, but not sure if it's in a release.

Hello Joe,

Thank you for writing.

We have introduced the sorting feature back in Q1 2012 SP1. Here is how you can set the sort order:
radGridView1.ColumnChooser.SortOrder = RadSortOrder.Ascending;
 
void radGridView1_ColumnChooserCreated(object sender, ColumnChooserCreatedEventArgs e)
{
    e.ColumnChooser.SortOrder = RadSortOrder.Ascending;
}

Using the ColumnChooserEvent is important, as the column chooser instance is recreated on demand. This ensures that you will always work with valid instance of it.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan, I added this code:

 Private Sub TheList_ColumnChooserCreated(sender As Object, e As ColumnChooserCreatedEventArgs) Handles TheList.ColumnChooserCreated
        e.ColumnChooser.SortOrder = RadSortOrder.Ascending
    End Sub

 

But the column chooser is not ordered, still the same as no order. I tried no order, ascending, descending, but all got the same order.

Please help.

 

Thanks.

Hello, Ada, 

The RadGridView.ColumnChooserCreated property controls how the columns in the column chooser will be sorted. I have attached a sample project for your reference. Please refer to the attached gif file illustrating the behavior on my end with the specified version.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
