Custom sorting in DataGrid
Tutorial » Custom sorting in DataGrid
If the default sort behavior is not adequate for your requirements, you can customize the datagrid's sorting behavior.
Basically the user could define a sort function named sorter on column, the function will receive two values and the return value will be as follows:
valueA > valueB => return 1
valueA < valueB => return -1
The Custom Sorting Code
As you can see from this code, we create a custom sorter for date column. The date format is 'dd/mm/yyyy' and can be easily sorted in year, month, day order.
