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)
