Is it possible to set the sorting of the mvc grid to not look at the case?  For example, below is sorted ascending and I want it to be purely alphabetical.

sorted ascending -> Alpha, Mike, Zulu, charlie, omega

but I want ascending to be -> Alpha, charlie, Mike, omega, Zulu.

If the only answer is custom binding for sorting, is there an example out there that already does this?  I can't be the first one to need this.

Hello Bill,

The sorting you described can only be achieved with custom binding. Since you are the first one who asks for that kind of sorting functionality I attached a demo project with sample implementation. I hope this helps.
For more detailed information processing the custom binding you can check the demos.

Hi again Maksim,

I am afraid that overriding the client sorting is not possible.

Check out the successor of Telerik MVC Extensions - Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC - and deem it for new ASP.NET MVC development.

This is so sad and ridiculous, this is the only grid I have encountered that sorts this way.
