Gridview templatefield sorting

Hi,

I have templatefield as shown below;

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Template Name" >
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="txttempName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("TEMPLATE_NAME") %>' CssClass="" MaxLength="30"></asp:TextBox>

                            </EditItemTemplate>

                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="LabeltempName" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("TEMPLATE_NAME") %>'></asp:Label>
                                                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>

Now please could help me out as how to implement sorting on this without use of linkbutton or hyperlink.


Thanks in advance...

Set the sortexpression to PROPERTY field. Please note that it should not a simple variabale.

Example.
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Category" SortExpression="Category">
   <ItemTemplate>A value</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

......

public class yourclass
{
   //Define Category property here
}

Open in new window
