GridView.OnSorting Method

Raises the Sorting event.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
'Declaration
Protected Overridable Sub OnSorting ( _
	e As GridViewSortEventArgs _
)
ExceptionCondition
HttpException

There is no handler for the Sorting event.

The Sorting event is raised when the hyperlink to sort a column is clicked, but before the GridView control handles the sort operation. This enables you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the sorting operation, whenever this event occurs.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnSorting method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnSorting in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnSorting method so that registered delegates receive the event.
