GroupBand outputs the entries into the report in the same order they are saved in the data source. Order property of the GroupBand sets the output order. There are 3 values of this property available: KeepOriginal – initial entries order, Ascending – the ascending sort of the entries, Descending - the descending sort of the entries.
SortExpression property sets sorting criterion.
Example of an ordered employee list grouped by the first letter of the name:
dataBand.DataSource = Employees; groupBand.GroupExpression = dataBand["EmployeeName"].ToString().Substring(0,1); groupBand.Order = Ascending; textBoxHeader.Value = Group; textBoxDetail.Value = dataBand["EmployeeName"]
