Default Sort with gridview

I have been trying to get this to work now for 2 days and I must be missing something cause I don’t think it should be this hard. I have a gridview that I fill without using a datasourceid. All I want to do is be able to sort the columns however the user wants to. I have been able to find C code that helps but no examples with VB. I have got as far as being able to get to the sub gridView_Sorting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewSortEventArgs) but cant get past this point. Can anyone please give me a hint or send me to a good example on the web.

there are lots of ways when u want to display the datacolumns in grid in sorted form
i want to know what actually u are using my mean to bind the datagrid with the columns of a table you are using templates or you are using <asp:boundcolumns>
if u are using bound column then it have its property SortExpression which we can use like
<asp:BoundColumn datafield="nameofcolumn" sortexpression="nameofcolumn which u want to use as sort expression"/>
if u will use above data will be displayed in sorted order.

secondly in a query which u are using to retrieve the data as select query apply order by clause at last. by this select query will generate the result in sorted order and grid will also after that

if u are using item templates then u can write a program i will write if u need
