How can we improve ASP.NET?

Sort ComboBoxes by the Text rather than the underlying numeric code

It's too frustrating to provide users with the ability to sort a combobox column and then have them come back to you and complain that it isn't sorting properly according to what they see, and you know that it's actually sorting by the numeric value of the combobox rather than the text the user actually sees. I've unsuccessfully tried implementing a provided workaround, but i really think this should just be automatic. A combo box should only ever sort by what a person sees on the screen
