EntityDataSource.AutoSort Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the EntityDataSource control supports sorting the data at run time.

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

public bool AutoSort { get; set; }
<asp:EntityDataSource AutoSort="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the user can sort the data; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

The EntityDataSource control supports automatically sorting the data returned by queries. The AutoSort property of the EntityDataSource control is a Boolean property that indicates whether sorting is enabled for data that is returned by queries that are bound to data controls. When this property is set to true, the EntityDataSource control adds the appropriate query builder methods to the ObjectQuery<T> based on the information supplied to the EntityDataSourceView by the data-bound control.

The value of the AutoSort property determines whether the CanSort and CanRetrieveTotalRowCount properties of the EntityDataSourceView control that supports the data source is true or false.
