I want to change the default sort order on SEARCH.ASPX to sort by part number.
WebTools 2007 is currently sorting the results of a parts search by a weighted index. I want it to sort by part number instead.
I tried to solve this by adding code to control the sorting on the gridview. After the gridview is bound to the data source I want to trigger an event to re-sort it. For this to work I need to get access to the datasource. Is there an API that contains the data source?
This is an extract on my current code.
<asp:GridView ID="PartsListGrid" runat="server"
AutoGenerateColumns="False" Width="100%" OnRowDataBound="PartsListGrid_RowDataBound"
EmptyDataText="No items were found"
OnSorting ="PartsListGrid_Sorting" >
<scri pt language="C#" runat=server>
void PartsListGrid_Sorting(object sender, GridViewSortEventArgs e)
DataTable m_DataTable = PartsListGrid.DataSource as DataTable;
if (m_DataTable != null)
DataView m_DataView = new DataView(m_DataTable);
m_DataView.Sort = e.SortExpression + " ASC";
PartsListGrid.DataSource = m_DataView;
void CustomersGridView_DataBound(Object sender, EventArgs e)
PartsListGrid.Sort("Product Code", SortDirection.Descending);
