    DataObject > Casting & GridField Sortable Link to this post

    Hi Guys,

    I want to sort my GridField based on a casted value in my DataObject;

    In my DataObject, summary_fields i point to a function DownloadsNum;
    static $summary_fields = array(
    'FirstName' => 'Varchar',
    'Surname' => 'Varchar',
    'Email' => 'Varchar(256)',
    'DownloadsNum' => 'Downloads'

    public function DownloadsNum(){
    $do = DataObject::get("TrackDownload", "MemberID ='".$this->ID."'");
    return $do->count();
    This is working, i see the values in my GridField. How can i put this column to a descending order by default?

    Hope someone can help.
