ComboBox.Sorted Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the items in the combo box are sorted.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public bool Sorted { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the combo box is sorted; otherwise, false. The default is false.
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

An attempt was made to sort a ComboBox that is attached to a data source.

This property specifies whether the ComboBox sorts existing entries and add new entries to the appropriate sorted position in the list. You can use this property to automatically sort items in a ComboBox. As items are added to a sorted ComboBox, the items are moved to the appropriate location in the sorted list. When you set the property to false, new items are added to the end of the existing list. The sort is case-insensitive and in alphabetically ascending order.

Attempting to set the Sorted property on a data-bound control raises an ArgumentException. You must sort the data using the underlying data model.
