Overriding a textfield is pretty basic

static $searchable_fields = array(
      "Title" => array(
          "field" => "TextField",
          "filter" => "PartialMatchFilter",
          "title" => 'Caller Name'

In Order to override the design of a Dropdown field, I placed

      "Destinations.ID" => array(
          "filter" => "ExactMatchFilter",
          "title" => 'Destination'

By removing the field in the array.
Is there a sort that I can place in the array?

I don't know (and don't think so) - but would very much like this option too!

you might be able to hack it by overriding (in your ModelAdmin_CollectionController)

   function getSearchQuery($searchCriteria){
   $query = parent::getSearchQuery($searchCriteria);
   //modify $query here
   return $query;

alternative is to have the best sort defined in the dataobject...

   static $default_sort = 'Title ASC';
