WebDataGrid Columns with Dropdown Editors should sort on the "text" value

WebDataGrid columns with Dropdown Editors and:

Value = ID (Primary and/or Foreign Key)
Text = Description or other meaningful identifier

should sort on the Text value displayed to the user and not the ID value stored in the database.

For instance a Project table might contain:

ProjectID = 1234 (Primary and\or Foreign Key stored in the database record)
ProjectNumber = "O7BP201W" (user friendly identifier)

ProjectID =5678
ProjectNumber = "A9RI105R"

ProjectID=25
ProjectNumber = "C4XQ921V"

The user sees the Project Number, but when sorting it sorts on the ID which is meaningless as the above would never sort as the user wants to see it.
