1) To enable sorting, set the AllowSorting property of the gridview to true

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.allowsorting(v=vs.110).aspx


2) Handle the Sorting event of the gridview to get the sorting that the user has applied and store it in session

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.sorting(v=vs.110).aspx

3) On page load, if the user had previously sorted the gridview, apply that sorting using the Sort method
