Datagrid sorting in WebMatrix

I am using Web Matrix and had drag a datagrid to display the data based on the value entered in OrderID -TextField.

When user enter orderid in text box, the datagrid list out the selected item based on the OrderID..
But then I set the AllowSorting property for Datagrid... When display on the web, there is link on the datagrid header but it doesn't sort when I click that link on the header.
Why?

Depending on how you fill the datagrid, you need to handle the datagird sort event. A data source control can do it for you. But a DataTable would need to be sorted using a DataView, then rebound to the grid.

I am using the Select Data Method form the CODE panel in Web Matrix... Then choose the Table name and the Where condition... Finally select the DataSet and name the method as GetOrderDetails.

After that I bind the GetOrderDetails method with with :
Dim orderID as String
    orderID =TextBox2.Text
    DataGrid1.DataSource = GetOrderDetails(CInt(TextBox2.Text))
    DataGrid1.DataBind()

Then I set the property of Datagrid1 AllowSorting to TRUE

It is able to display the record but not able to sort when I click the link in the datagrid header
