DataGridView.Sorted Event

Occurs when the DataGridView control completes a sorting operation.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public event EventHandler Sorted

This event does not occur when the VirtualMode property is set to true and the control is sorted by an unbound column.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates how to ensure that the current cell is visible after sorting. This code works only with an unbound DataGridView control. With a DataGridView control bound to an external data source, the current cell is not automatically persisted when sorting.

To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1. In C#, you must also connect the Sorted event to the event handler.


private void dataGridView1_Sorted(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.dataGridView1.FirstDisplayedCell = this.dataGridView1.CurrentCell;
}
