Legal values

  • True indicates that the column is a secondary sorting column.
  • False indicates that the column is not a secondary sorting column.


In the sort tab for column properties, "Click on column head to sort" indicates a user-sorted column. For ascending and descending sorts, you can choose to have a secondary sort column.

If a user-sorted column is "Change to view," this property is false.

The column must be selected through the designer UI.

The sort is ascending unless IsSecondaryResortDescending is True.
