Sort functionality in Data Grid


Hi Gurus,

I am new to this DataGrid control.I want to establish the sort functionality when clicking on the headercolumns as in matrices.

(ie.When double clicking the header column , sort the data in ascending or descending order of that column) like in system form matrices.

How ever this is not possible when I tried with grid control.

The problem I am facing is that I cannot get the column headers of the grid programmatically.(in duble click event or itempressed event)

Anybody did this one previously? Also how

we can change the column order of the grid using screen painter?

The columns that actually come visible in the grid are actually columns of the linked datatable object.

In the designer ,there is no "swap" button for column re-ordering.

Only one way I know is changing the query associated with datatable.

This is a crucial thing ,since client may ask for re-ordering of columns frequently.

Can anybody help?
