I have a datagridview and I set each column to be notSortable but when I run the appllication, you can sort the columns.  Then I read  where sorting has to be set in code when the data binding  is in code, but I don't know how to do this.  Can someone give me an example?

I added this in my code after the data binding and it did not not work.

dgvCallingTime.Columns["DayofWeek"].SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable;

You might try something like this:
for (int i = 0; i < DataGridView.Columns.Count; i++)
  DataGridView.Columns[i].SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable;
  DataGridView.Columns[i].ReadOnly = true;
