ObjectDataSourceView.CanSort Property

Gets a value indicating whether the ObjectDataSourceView object that is associated with the current ObjectDataSource control supports a sorted view on the underlying data source.

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

public override bool CanSort { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_CanSort ()

public override function get CanSort () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

true.

Because the ObjectDataSource control only supports sorting data when the Select method returns a DataSet, DataView, or DataTable object, the view object cannot determine whether sorting is supported until the Select method is called and returns. For this reason, the CanSort property always returns true.
