Please excuse us for the belated response. It took us quite some time to create a sample custom control, which offers this functionality. We've inherited from the control's MasterListView, and are sorting the collection in the GetItems() method. You will find the control and its template attached to my post. If you need some additional information or have any other questions, please let us know, we'll be glad to help.
