… Is it possible, when you first click on a column to sort, to sort that column in ASC order instead of DESC like it now does?
Currently, when you click on a sortable column, the default sort order is descending (z-a). I would instead like to have it sort by ascending on first click (a-z).
Lucky for the guy who posted that message, I just recently modified a local copy of TableKit to do this. Around line 330, change this line:
order = order ? order : (cell.hasClassName(op.descendingClass) ? 1 : -1);
order = order ? order : (cell.hasClassName(op.descendingClass) ? 1 : (cell.hasClassName(op.ascendingClassName) ? -1 : (cell.hasClassName('initialSortAsc') ? 1 : -1)) );
Then, in your HTML markup, add the class initialSortAsc to the column header, as in this:
Essentially the change does this:
- If the cell has the descending class name, then sort ascending.
- Otherwise, if it has the ascending class name, then sort descending.
- Otherwise, if it has the class name initialSortAsc, then sort ascending.
- Otherwise, sort descending.
In other words — by applying the class ‘initialSortAsc’ to your header row, it will make the default sort for that column ascending.
