DataGridView / DataTable - Sort by row errors

Hi All,

I have a DataTable that I have bound to a DataGridView.  In the DataTable there are several rows where I have manually set the DataRow.RowError property.  

How do I sort the DataTable (or a related DataView), so that the rows with errors are displayed first?

Cheers

If you set DataRow.RowError manually then I assume you are itterating through all of the rows and checking for some conditions. What I'd suggest here is:
 - add one extra column to your datatable (let's call it cError) of type Boolean
 - in the iteration process set DataRow("cError") = True along with DataRow.RowError setting
 - the set sorting and filtering in DataTable's Defaultview
 - Bind gridview to DataTable's Defaultview

Thanks,

For a moment I was hoping that MS had an internal way of doing this, but that solution has done the job.
