hi - I'm working with a datagridview control. I would like to disable the feature that allows the user to click on the header bar and the respective column is reordered (one click orders ascending, the next click orders descending.) at best this is confusing in the context of the application, and it might be reordering values as they are read back in to my permanent storage, since it only reorders a single column, not the entire row.
thanks,

Set the SortMode property of the columns to NotSortable instead of the default Automatic value.

Hi,

if you want to disable sorting for a specific column then you can use SortExpression="" like following:

<asp:BoundField HeaderText="Header Name" DataField="FieldName" SortExpression="" />


and for complete grid you can use allowsorting="false"  as following:

<asp:gridview id="gv"
        allowsorting="false"
        runat="server">

Thanks
