CanSort Property

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 Value

Type: System.Boolean

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.
