ShowSortIndicator Property

FarPoint.Win.Spread Assembly > FarPoint.Win.Spread Namespace > Column Class : ShowSortIndicator Property
Gets or sets whether the column shows a sort indicator when automatically sorted.
Public Property ShowSortIndicator As Boolean
Dim instance As Column
Dim value As Boolean
instance.ShowSortIndicator = value
value = instance.ShowSortIndicator
public bool ShowSortIndicator {get; set;}

Property Value

Boolean: true to display the sort indicator; false to hide the sort indicator

The Column.ShowSortIndicator property and the SheetView.SetColumnShowSortIndicator method 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 whether the column displays a sort indicator.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column col;
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;
col.ShowSortIndicator = true;
col.AllowAutoSort = true;
Dim col As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column
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
col.ShowSortIndicator = True
col.AllowAutoSort = True
