How to: Sort Data

This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

This topic shows how to sort query results. The example returns a collection of Product objects sorted alphabetically by the first letter of Product.ProductName.

To run the code in this example, you need to create a new Telerik Data Access Domain Model based on the Northwind database.

The following code is the LINQ example.

using ( EntitiesModel dbContext = new EntitiesModel() )
   var products = from product in dbContext.Products
                  orderby product.ProductName
                  select product;
   foreach ( Product product in products )
       Console.WriteLine( "ProductName: {0}", product.ProductName );
Using dbContext As New EntitiesModel()
 Dim products = From product In dbContext.Products
                Order By product.ProductName
                Select product
 For Each _product As Product In products
  Console.WriteLine("ProductName: {0}", _product.ProductName)
 Next _product
End Using
