4 Aug 20212 minutes to read

The Querybuilder has options to sort the column fields by ascending or descending order. To Sort the columns, you need to set SortDirection property.

In the following sample columns are sorted in ascending order.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.QueryBuilder

<SfQueryBuilder DataSource="@EmployeeData" SortDirection="SortDirection.Ascending">
    <QueryBuilderRule Condition="or" Rules="@Rules"></QueryBuilderRule>
    <QueryBuilderColumns>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="EmployeeID" Label="Employee ID" Type="ColumnType.Number"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="FirstName" Label="First Name" Type="ColumnType.String"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="TitleOfCourtesy" Label="Title of Courtesy" Type="ColumnType.Boolean" Values="Values"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="Title" Label="Title" Type="ColumnType.String"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="HireDate" Label="Hire Date" Type="ColumnType.Date"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="Country" Label="Country" Type="ColumnType.String"></QueryBuilderColumn>
        <QueryBuilderColumn Field="City" Label="City" Type="ColumnType.String"></QueryBuilderColumn>
    </QueryBuilderColumns>
</SfQueryBuilder>

@code {
    private string[] Values = new string[] { "Mr.", "Mrs." };
    List<RuleModel> Rules = new List<RuleModel>()
    {
            new RuleModel { Field="Country", Label="Country", Type="String", Operator="equal", Value = "England" },
            new RuleModel { Field="EmployeeID", Label="EmployeeID",  Type="Number", Operator="notequal", Value = 1001 }
    };

    public List<EmployeeDetails> EmployeeData = new List<EmployeeDetails>
    {
        new EmployeeDetails{ FirstName = "Martin", EmployeeID = 1001, Country = "England", City = "Manchester", HireDate = new DateTime(2014, 4, 23) },
        new EmployeeDetails{ FirstName = "Benjamin", EmployeeID = 1002, Country = "England", City = "Birmingham", HireDate = new DateTime(2014, 6, 19) },
        new EmployeeDetails{ FirstName = "Stuart", EmployeeID = 1003, Country = "England", City = "London", HireDate = new DateTime(2014, 7, 4) },
        new EmployeeDetails{ FirstName = "Ben", EmployeeID = 1004, Country = "USA", City = "California", HireDate = new DateTime(2014, 8, 15) },
        new EmployeeDetails{ FirstName = "Joseph", EmployeeID = 1005, Country = "Spain", City = "Madrid", HireDate = new DateTime(2014, 8, 29) }
    };

    public class EmployeeDetails
    {
        public string FirstName { get; set; }
        public int EmployeeID { get; set; }
        public string Country { get; set; }
        public string City { get; set; }
        public DateTime HireDate { get; set; }
