Hi,

I've got a DBGrid, it gets data through a query from an SQL server, and I want to change the "order by" in the query's SQL statement, when the user clicks on the title of a column.
somebody pls paste some rows here to make this thing work.
thx in advance

  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

const
  mysql = 'Select * from Address order by ';
  ToSort : Array [False..True] of String[5] = (' DESC',' ASC');

var
  NoField : Integer = 0;  //FieldNumber to Sort
  SortAsc : Boolean = True; //SortOrder True-Ascending,False-Descending


{$R *.DFM}


Procedure TForm1.SortQuery(FieldNo : Integer; SortOrder : Boolean);
var

    Values[i] := query1.Fields[I].Value;
  end;
  Delete(Fields,Length(Fields),1);
  query1.Close;
  query1.Sql.Clear;
  query1.Sql.Text := s;
  query1.Open;
  query1.Locate(Fields,Values,[]);  //Goto to Current Record

end;

procedure TForm1.Query1AfterPost(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
  query1.ApplyUpdates;
  query1.CommitUpdates;
  SortQuery(NoField,SortAsc);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  query1.Open;
  SortQuery(NoField,SortAsc);
end;

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1TitleClick(Column: TColumn);
begin
  if Column.Field.FieldNo - 1= NoField then
    SortAsc := Not(SortAsc)
  else
  begin
    SortAsc := True;
    NoField := Column.Field.FieldNo - 1;
  end;
  SortQuery(NoField,SortAsc);
end;

end.
