DataGridSortCommandEventArgs Class

Provides data for the SortCommand event of the DataGrid control. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public class DataGridSortCommandEventArgs : EventArgs
public class DataGridSortCommandEventArgs extends EventArgs
public class DataGridSortCommandEventArgs extends EventArgs

When sorting is enabled by setting the AllowSorting property of the DataGrid control to true, LinkButton controls are rendered in the header of each column that has the SortExpression property set. (For automatically generated columns, the SortExpression property contains the same value as the data field.) These links allow you to sort the DataGrid control by the selected column. The SortCommand event is raised when a LinkButton control is clicked.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of DataGridSortCommandEventArgs, see the DataGridSortCommandEventArgs constructor.

For more information about handling events, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the SortCommand event to sort a DataGrid control.
