Data Grid

Multiple Sorting

The DataGrid widget can sort values by a single or multiple columns. Use the sorting.mode option to specify the sorting mode:

  • Single sorting mode. A user can click the column header to sort by this column and click it again to change the sort order (ascending or descending). An arrow icon in the column's header indicates the sort order.

  • Multiple sorting mode. A user can hold the Shift key and click column headers in the order the user wants to apply sorting. To cancel a column's sorting settings, a user should hold the Ctrl key and click the column header.

A user can also apply or cancel sorting settings in the column header's context menu. To disallow a user to sort by a particular column, set the column's allowSorting option to false.

To specify the initial sorting settings, use the column's sortOrder and sortIndex options. You can also use these options to change sorting settings at runtime, as shown in this demo.
