How to sort items in RadGridView based on column when it is loaded using SortDescriptors

Issue

How to Sort RadGridView in ascending order based on a column value when it is loaded.

How did I fix it:

Use SortDescriptors to Sort RadGridView in ascending order based on a column value when it is loaded. Sort descriptors can be used as shown below. Here the list bind to RadGridView is list of Signals. Structure of Signal is as shown below.

struct Signal
 {
   public int Id { get; set; }
   public string Name { get; set; }
 }

Here we are trying to sort the list displayed based in the Id in ascending order.

<telerik:RadGridView ItemsSource="{Binding Events}">
<telerik:RadGridView.SortDescriptors>
    <telerik:SortDescriptor Member="Timestamp" SortDirection="Descending" />
    </telerik:RadGridView.SortDescriptors>
<telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
   <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Id}" Header="ID" />
 <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Description}" Header="Description" />
</telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
</telerik:RadGridView>

I have wide range of interests and getting my hands dirty in technology is one among them. I use this platform primarily as my knowledge base. I also use this platform to share my experience and experiments so that it might help someone who is walking the way I already did. The suggestions expressed here are the best to my knowledge at the time of writing and this may not necessarily be the best possible solution. I would pretty much appreciate if you could comment on it to bring into my notice on what could have been done better.
