DataGrid.OnSorting Method

Raises the Sorting event.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

protected virtual void OnSorting(
	DataGridSortingEventArgs eventArgs
)

Parameters

eventArgs
Type: System.Windows.Controls.DataGridSortingEventArgs
The data for the event.

This method causes a default sort to occur on the column that raised the event if the sort event is not marked as handled.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnSorting method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnSorting in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnSorting method so that registered delegates receive the event.
