    In This Topic
    Gets or sets the sort indicator for this column.
    Public Property SortIndicator As SortIndicator
    Dim instance As Column
    Dim value As SortIndicator
    instance.SortIndicator = value
    value = instance.SortIndicator
    public SortIndicator SortIndicator {get; set;}

    Property Value

    SortIndicator setting that specifies how and if the sort indicator is displayed

    The SheetView.SetColumnShowSortIndicator method and the Column.ShowSortIndicator property set whether the column shows the sort indicator the next time that the SheetView.AutoSortColumns method is called for that column. It has no effect until AutoSortColumns is called for that column index.

    If you want to change the sort indicator shown for a column, use the SheetView.SetColumnSortIndicator method or the Column.SortIndicator property. These change the sort indicator in the column header and do not affect whether the column is sorted or not.

    This example specifies the sort indicator for the column.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column col;
    col = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[0];
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.SortInfo[] sort = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.SortInfo[1];
    sort[0] = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.SortInfo(0, false, System.Collections.Comparer.Default);
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Text = "Alignment";
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[1, 0].Text = "CarbAdjust";
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[2, 0].Text = "Brakes";
    col.SortIndicator = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SortIndicator.Descending;
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SortRange(0, 0, 3, 1, true, sort);
    Dim col As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column
    Dim sort(1) As FarPoint.Win.Spread.SortInfo
    sort(0) = New FarPoint.Win.Spread.SortInfo(0, False, System.Collections.Comparer.Default)
    col = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns(0)
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).Text = "Alignment"
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 0).Text = "CarbAdjust"
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 0).Text = "Brakes"
    col.SortIndicator = FarPoint.Win.Spread.Model.SortIndicator.Descending
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SortRange(0, 0, 3, 1, True, sort)
