Sort Data using Entity Framework

sometimes we need to sort data when working with entity sets. here is very simple yet powerful single line statement  that sorts data.

we are going to sort data using CustomerName Property. remember that “it” is a must.

//Ascending order
var data = context.Customers.OrderBy(“it.CustomerName ASC”);

//descending order
var data = context.Customers.OrderBy(“it.CustomerName DESC”);

// lets user this data
customerBindingSource.DataSource = data;
