Need to sort columns in DataGridView

319 Views
Last Modified: 2017-03-29
I am using a List<> to populate a DataGridView like this:

List<object> myList = GetObjects();
DataGridView.DataSource = myList;

I would like to be able to sort the DataGridView columns without using a BindingList by clicking on the column heading. Is that possible? I've got to believe in this day and age, there are better ways to do this.

Ideas?

Saige,
I do not have to write anything back to the database - this datagridview is only for viewing purposes. I will give your solution a try and let you know the outcome.
