Sorting

16 May

There are several ways to sort data in C# but one of the easiest ways is using BindingSource sort capability.
Depending on what object (underlying list) is linked to the BindingSource as its DataSource and whether it has implemented IBindingList or IBindingListView interfaces or not, you can use this feature.

To find out whether a BindingSource with current DataSource supports sorting, use ‘SupportsSorting’ property:

if (bindingSource1.SupportsSorting)
{
	bindingSource1.Sort = "Code, Name";
}

Similarly, you can benefit from BindingSource.Filter .
