Silverlight 4 Datagrid - Save sorting on refresh

I have a silverlight 4 datagrid populated by a pagedcollectionview following MVVM pattern. The grid updates periodically and refreshes the items by checking a database to get the latest values. However when it does this it doesn't save the current sort of the grid. What is the best and/or easiest way to accomplish saving the sorting state?

By default, it should preserve the sorting option, it seems you are either handling control dynamically. if it is, then just get the sort option from the grid and apply it programatically after refreshing or rebinding
