hi,
let's take an example that your datawindow has two columns emp_code and emp_name and you specified the sort criteria while designing the datawindow so your sort criteria is say
'emp_name A'.
now through script u can get this value by using

String is_sort  // instance variable
is_sort = dw_1.Object.datawindow.table.sort

you can store this value in instance variable, before applying another sort scriteria and can reapply later with
dw_1.setsort(is_sort) and
dw_1.sort()

hope it will work for u..if not reply...

hi  tsirakua,
try the following code in the clicked event of a button...assuming that ur dw has retrieved....

String ls_sort, ls_caption

ls_caption = cb_sort.Text
If Upper(ls_caption) = 'SORT' Then
      is_oldsort = dw_1.Object.DataWindow.Table.Sort  // remember old sort criteria
      SetNull(ls_sort )
      dw_1.SetSort(ls_sort)   // ask user for sort criteria
      dw_1.Sort()
      cb_sort.Text = 'Release'
Elseif Upper(ls_caption) = 'RELEASE' Then
      dw_1.SetSort(is_oldsort)  // apply old sort criteria
      dw_1.Sort()
      cb_sort.Text = 'Sort'
End If      

let me know for further clarifications......

Cheers...
