BindingList<T>.ApplySortCore Method (PropertyDescriptor, ListSortDirection)


Sorts the items if overridden in a derived class; otherwise, throws a NotSupportedException.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

protected virtual void ApplySortCore(
	PropertyDescriptor prop,
	ListSortDirection direction


Type: System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor

A PropertyDescriptor that specifies the property to sort on.

Type: System.ComponentModel.ListSortDirection

One of the ListSortDirection values.

Exception Condition

In addition, you may want to implement the supplemental SortDirectionCore and SortPropertyCore sorting properties.
