Could someone provide an example of the code that I need to add to the Sorting event handler to have my gridview sort...

Hi, I've been experimenting with the ASP.Net GridView and encountered some interesting issues that I thought I would share. I have a page that loads a GridView with a generic collection of objects. For the purposes of this discussion, the objects define a Customer, and have an id and a name. I want to sort these customers by id or by name in ascending and descending order. Here is what I did to make it work.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
