I am using a DataGrid control in a C# application. When I use my mouse to click on a DataGrid column header, a little arrow (up/down) appears in the column header and records are sorted. I need the same thing to happen automatically, without any user intervention. How do I do this?

Thank you for your time,

You need to use the DataView.Sort property (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfSystemDataDataViewClassSortTopic.asp).

If you are using a DataView for the DataSource of the DataGrid, just set its Sort property to the correct column you need to sort by. If you are using a DataTable for the DataSource of the DataGrid, you can use the DataTable.DefaultView property to get the data view and then set the Sort property.
