Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

type DataGridSortCommandEventArgs =  
        inherit EventArgs

The DataGridSortCommandEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public methodDataGridSortCommandEventArgsInitializes a new instance of the DataGridSortCommandEventArgs class.

Public propertyCommandSourceGets the source of the command.
Public propertySortExpressionGets the expression used to sort the DataGrid control.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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.
