The GridView control raises the Sorting event when a Sort button (a button with its CommandName property set to "Sort") is clicked, but before the GridView control handles the sort operation. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as canceling the sorting operation, whenever this event occurs.
A object is passed to the event-handling method, which allows you to specify or determine the sort expression and sort direction in which to sort the GridView control. To determine the sort expression, use the SortExpression property. To determine the sort direction, use the SortDirection property. You can also cancel a sorting operation by setting the Cancel property to true.
