Sort datagridview with list as datasource

Sort datagridview with list as datasource

Sort datagridview with list as datasource

I have multiple datagridview in my form, each bound to different list (of generic objects).
I need to create one routine to sort (thru Column Header Click) of any of these datagridviews.
I have a code that hard-code the field of the datasource as:

_dsrc.OrderBy(Function(x) CInt(x.ID)).ToList

But I need to write a code that will handle all of them without hard-coding.
Been searching for days online, but unable to find any.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Sort datagridview with list as datasource

Try using a BindingList, as in this article:
