Hello and thanks for a great tool. I have an issue with gridview sorts not working. I am adding user controls to the EasyControls folder. These controls consist of gridviews. The "Allow Sorting" is set to true. I have added an express database and I am using sqldatasources as the data source. The gridviews work fine in all other ways except when added to a page the sort is not available. The under-line is not there. In the gridview the SortExpression is set the datafields correctly.  Any help would be great. Also why can I not save the connection string in the Web Config file?

I am also having the same problem with an access database and the accessdatasource. The column headings are underlined in design view of visual web developer, but not when displayed on the page through the easy control. Any help is greatly appreciated.

have a look to your skin file: 



asp:GridView runat="server" AllowPaging="true" AllowSorting="true" BorderStyle="none" BorderWidth="0px" Width="100%" GridLines="none"></asp:GridView>

I've set AllowSorting and AllowPaging to true and voila...

I cannot find a skin file, where is it located? And what setting in the skin file am I looking for?

I Got IT! I found the skins in the Themes Folder and made the change for the gridview. That did it! Thanks very much.
