Sorts the items if overridden in a derived class; otherwise, throws a NotSupportedException.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

abstract ApplySortCore : 
        prop:PropertyDescriptor *
        direction:ListSortDirection -> unit
override ApplySortCore : 
        prop:PropertyDescriptor *
        direction:ListSortDirection -> unit


Type: System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor

A PropertyDescriptor that specifies the property to sort on.

Type: System.ComponentModel.ListSortDirection

One of the ListSortDirection values.

Exception Condition

Method is not overridden in a derived class.

The BindingList<'T> class does not provide a base implementation of sorting, so ApplySortCore always throws a NotSupportedException by default. To enable sorting, derive from BindingList<'T> and perform the following tasks:

In addition, you may want to implement the supplemental SortDirectionCore and SortPropertyCore sorting properties.
