Hi I have one data table and I have usercontrol to return dataset of data table.
Because I have multiple columns in the data table , I like to sort by
"column1(String), column2(String), column3(DateTime) DESC" , and then return dataset.

Here is my code.
//create disk data table already, diskDT
//ds.Tables.Add(diskDT); //assign to dataset as a return later
string sortstr = "PatientID,ShotDate,ShotProc,FileName DESC";
DataView dv = new DataView();
dv = diskDT.DefaultView;
dv.Sort = sortstr;
ds = dv.Table.DataSet;
return ds

However, data set shows the original and did not sort it out.
How can I get the sort result to dataset?

Try this..

string sortstr = "PatientID,ShotDate,ShotProc,FileName DESC";
diskDT.DefaultView.Sort = sortstr;
return diskDT;

Hi there,
DataSet does NOT retain sorting. Not even a Table. We can sort only a VIEW. so, instead of returning DataSet/Table, return the sorted VIEW.

If you want the sorted records in the DataSet/Table, change your Sql query for sorted selection. Something like..
"SELECT * FROM Emp ORDER BY EmpID,EmpName, Dept DESC"
