Display Sort Order Column

Is there a way to display the current column a user is sorting on? Say I have a data table and they sort on Price, what I'd like to have is somewhere on the report telling the user they are currently sorting on price and have it change based on whatever column they choose to sort on.

@bhanes22 There is no DAX function that I am aware of that returns what is being sorted on.

Yea I know it has that icon, but I'd like it to display somewhere the column name thats being sorted. Im not sure if this is possible, but thats what our CEO wants.

@bhanes22 You mean like the icon that appears in Table visualizations when you sort on a column in the table? It even displays a down arrow if sorting in descending order and an up arrow if sorting in ascending order...
