Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
The Sorted event is raised when the hyperlink to sort a column is clicked, but after the GridView control handles the sort operation. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as custom sorting, whenever this event occurs.
Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.
The OnSorted 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 OnSorted in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnSorted method so that registered delegates receive the event.
