Reverse Sort order option for date columns

As a user, I want to be able to sort columns including various date formats in order to view data in chronological or reverse chronological order. Should support major date formats including:

January 2012
January 2 2012
2 January 2012
2012 January 2

Avoid situation like this:

January 2011
January 2012
February 2011
February 2012

Implement ability to sort like this:

January 2011
February 2011
January 2012
February 2012

    When listing dates from a column in a property control, it would be great to have the newest date on top. Currently I need to use a workaround using an IP script to reverse the sorting order explicitly.


Ability to change the sort order of the values in a filter

The ability to sort the date values in a filter column of data type date. For example: If you have a column filter type of list box, users would like to sort the values in the list box by asc or dsc. This will be very helpful if you have many values.
