When sorting is enabled by setting the AllowSorting property of the DataGrid control to true, LinkButton controls are rendered in the header of each column that has the SortExpression property set. (For automatically generated columns, the SortExpression property contains the same value as the data field.) These links allow you to sort the DataGrid control by the selected column. The SortCommand event is raised when a LinkButton control is clicked.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of DataGridSortCommandEventArgs, see the DataGridSortCommandEventArgs constructor.
