ASP.NET (VB) SortExpression in gridview - multiple columns?

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi experts.

I have a basic GridView control in my ASP.NET (VB.NET) web page which is bound using Entity Framework.  My databound columns are sortable using the SortExpression attribute and this all works fine.

One of my columns (Product) on click of sorting, I would like to sort by product, then version (another column called Version) rather than just by Product (which it currently does).

Is this possible and if so, how do I this?
