Please help with dynamic table sorting


Recommended Posts


I want to be able to sort table columns dynamically, like clicking on a header arrow?

I have no idea where to start. I did a google search and I found lots of pre-made extensions bu not a simple tutorial to get me started.

Can you point me in the right direction?

That would likely be best achieved using jquery mate because it's not really dynamic - you're just shuffling data that's already been generated and not actually pulling new data.


At any rate checkout jquery http://api.jquery.com.


I think there are probably a few ways to acheive what your example does. One would be an ajax call to a script that reproduces the table based on what has been clicked. Or a less resource intensive method would be to create a jquery script to pull out the table values into an array and remake the table based on the desired sort option - though that would need some thought to pull off correctly. Hope that helps a little...





Sorry...this is want I want to do
