Sort column when clicking header in DataViewGrid

I have a DataGridView that pops up a dialog when a cell is clicked. The dialog displays information relevant to the selected row.

If I click the column header, the dialog is displayed even though I only want the DataGridView to be sorted. Once I close the dialog, the DataGRidView is displayed sorted.

How can I avoid displaying the dialog when the column header is displayed?

Here's an example of how you can fix this.  I'm assuming you are usin the CellContentClick even.  Simple add an if check for e.RowIndex == -1, which represents the headerrow.
private void dataGridView1_CellContentClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.RowIndex == -1)
            {
            }
            else
            {
                MessageBox.Show("Hello");
            }
        }
