To request sorted data on initial load, configure the sort options in the DataSourceSortDescriptorFactory. The ToDataSourceResult() extension method will return only the sorted data in the response object.

  • The Sort method sets the initial sorts.
        .Ajax(datasource => datasource
            .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            .Sort(sort =>
                //Sort by the UnitsInStock in descending order.
                sort.Add(product => product.UnitsInStock).Descending();
                // Then sort by the ProductName in ascending order.
                sort.Add(product => product.ProductName);
