How to disable the DataGridView sorting?

I'm using a DataGridView on a Form. I want to disable the clicking on the
columns headers to disallow the sorting.

How can I do that, but without deriving the DataGridView?

Is there any other way to disable the sorting of the DataGridView without
deriving it?

You can turn this off an a column-by-column basis by using .SortMode

I am having trouble determining when my DataGridView object is sorting (based on a column header click). The idea is, in a large table, sorting the columns takes time, so I show a splash screen.

OK, this is rediculous... Surely, sorting should be one of the easiest things with the ASP.NET DataGridView control. I mean, there's hundreds of sites out there (Microsoft MSDN entries included) which explain and give examples of the DataGridView sorting and how to make it work... SO WHY CAN'T I GET IT TO WORK?! Dammit! Apologies for...
