Like auto-refresh, auto-sort only applies to new messages as they are received over an active connection. If auto-refresh is enabled for a query, new messages will be displayed as they are received. If additionally auto-sort is enabled and a sort order is defined for the query, a sort will be performed each time a message is received. If auto-sort is disabled, new messages will be displayed at the bottom of the list until the query is refreshed or sorted. This option is accessed through the Query Display Settings dialog.
