Sort Gridview Data

Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I am here yet again with tales of woe surrounding XML.... (by the end of this little task I should be perfect on XML...)

todays query is....

I currently have a gridview that is databound to an XML file which pulls through the information i want perfectly fine using the below code sample.

An afterthought of mine with this task was to merg the 6 XML files into one file and then render this XML file accordingly and again this works perfectly until I look at the times the records were created.  

What I would like to happen is for my dataset to be able to sort the XML records and render them in time order.

I have tried using the  AllowSorting="true" tag but when I build and run the page I get an error saying The  " GridView 'datagrid1' fired event Sorting which wasn't handled. "
Can anyone help by showing me what I need to do in order to sort the data or if there is another way of doing things...

Dim ds As New DataSet()
        If File.Exists("\\wintdc02\PUBLIC\TarehouseXML\" & machine.Text & year.Text & month.Text & day.Text & ".xml") Then
            ds.ReadXml("\\wintdc02\PUBLIC\TarehouseXML\" & machine.Text & year.Text & month.Text & day.Text & ".xml")
            datagrid1.DataSource = ds
            Response.Write("The file you are looking for does not exist or has been moved")
        End If
