sort()

sorts controls according to some criteria

sort(rule?: ISortMode): void;

Parameters:

rule: object - an object with parameters for sorting

Example

treeGrid.data.sort({    by: "price",    dir: "asc",    as: function (value) { return value ? value : "" }});

The rule object has the following attributes:

by(string) the id of a data field (a column of TreeGrid)
dir(function) the direction of sorting "asc" or "desc"
as(function) a function that specifies the type to sort data as
rule(function) optional, a sorting rule; the function must have two parameters and return a number (-1,0,1)
note

Calling the method without parameters will discard all applied sorting rules.

Custom sorting#

To set a custom function for sorting you need to specify the rule attribute in a passed object. For example:

treegrid.data.sort({    rule: (a,b) => (a.type < b.type) ? -1 : ( (a.type > b.type) ? 1 : 0 )});
