Is there any way to determine what column a datagrid is sorted on given only the datagrid and the datatable.  Ex. I have a datagrid that is using a datatable as a datasource.  The user clicks on a column header to sort the datagrid.  When the datatable is refreshed, the datagrid goes back to the default sort order.  At the time I go to refresh the datatable, is there any way I can determine the current sort order?????????

Isn't the idea that you bind the grid to a DataView and it's the view that holds the state, including the sort criteria?
