Default Data sorting

I have requirement of sorting the data according to Data Type of the column.Numeric and Date columns will be ordered from smallest to largest. String columns will be sorted alphanumerically without regard to case.What functionality do i need to add to a GridView to do this?

Any help or suggestion is most welcome

Thank you

Do you need to group together row with similar data types? If so you'll need to provide some custom sorting logic.

If you were to sort the rows by that column and allow it to be sorted alphanumerically (with numeric/date values converted for sorting), you would end up with all the numeric and date type rows at the top, however, those rows would likely be mixed.
