Automatic column sorting for any data source allows you to sort against an unlimited number of columns, without writing a single line of code. A column's current sort order is indicated by a sort glyph displayed at the column header's right edge. If the column isn't sorted, the sort glyph is hidden.
Click a column's header to sort data against a data column or change the column's sort order. To sort data against multiple columns, click column headers with the SHIFT key pressed down. Clicking a column header with the CTRL key pressed down removes sorting by column's values but preserves other sort conditions.
Set the SettingsBehavior.AllowSort option to true to enable end-user sorting.
The TreeList provides a Client-Side API that enables you to apply sorting on the client. To do this, use the SortBy client method.
