DataGridView sorting numeric columns

Dear Expert,

I'm filling a DataGridView the following way:


               NewDataGridViewRow = New DataGridViewRow
               NewDataGridViewRow.CreateCells(DataGridView1)
               '
               NewDataGridViewRow.Cells(dgv.Opdracht).Value = recOrders("bestelnummer").Value.ToString
               NewDataGridViewRow.Cells(dgv.Klant).Value = recOrders("debiteur").Value.ToString
               NewDataGridViewRow.Cells(dgv.Klantnaam).Value = recOrders("bezorgnaam").Value.ToString

(I could also use binding with a dataset, but I am not allowed to do this.)

Column "Klant" is of type DataGridViewTextBoxColumn, but contains actually numeric data.

Now I want to sort on "Klant" with:

DataGridView1.Sort(DataGridView1.Columns("Klant"), System.ComponentModel.ListSortDirection.Ascending)

Now I get a result like this for the column "Klant":

10
300
325
77
77
77
77
9

it should be:

9
10
77
77
77
77
300
325


So sorting is not in a numeric way,but character way

QUESTION:

Can I use something else than "DataGridViewTextBoxColumn" that treats the data numeric?

If I have to use DataGridViewTextBoxColumn can (easily) I sort in a numeric way?

Thanks,

what happens if you change this:

recOrders("debiteur").Value.ToString

to this:

recOrders("debiteur").Value
0

You need to implement a numeric comparer:

Public Class NumericComparer
    Implements IComparer

    Public Function Compare(ByVal x As Object, ByVal y As Object) As Integer Implements System.Collections.IComparer.Compare
        If TypeOf x Is String And TypeOf y Is String Then
            Return String.Compare(Val(x), Val(y))
        ElseIf TypeOf x Is Integer And TypeOf y Is Integer Then
            Return Compare(x, y)
        End If
    End Function

End Class

And, then implement:

   DataGridView1.Sort(New NumericComparer)
