DataGridViewColumnSortMode Enumeration

Defines how a DataGridView column can be sorted by the user.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public enum DataGridViewColumnSortMode
Member nameDescription
NotSortableThe column can only be sorted programmatically, but it is not intended for sorting, so the column header will not include space for a sorting glyph.
AutomaticThe user can sort the column by clicking the column header unless the column headers are used for selection. A sorting glyph will be displayed automatically.
ProgrammaticThe column can only be sorted programmatically, and the column header will include space for a sorting glyph.

Each column may have a different sort mode specified by the SortMode property.

The following code example illustrates the use of this type. For more information, see How to: Set the Sort Modes for Columns in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.


this.dataGridView1.Columns["Priority"].SortMode =
    DataGridViewColumnSortMode.Automatic;
