Gridview Header Template sorting

Hello All,

I have a Gridview with a Header Template on one of the columns. I would like
to sort by this column. How do I accomplish that? Any help is very much

Note: I'm able to get the sorting to work in all the other columns.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Felix,

Thank you for your post.

Based on my understanding, the issue is: You are using a Header Template in
one of the TemplateField column and want to know how to sort by that column
in GridView. If I've misunderstood anything, please feel free to post here.

I think all you need to do is make sure that there's a control in the
Header Template that have correct CommandName and CommandArgument set, for

<%#Eval("ProductName") %>
<asp:LinkButton ID="link1" runat="server" CommandName="Sort"
CommandArgument="ProductName" Text="Hello"></asp:LinkButton>

The key properties is that we set CommandName="Sort", and
CommandArgument="ProductName" which is the bound field name.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to post here if anything is unclear.
