Help with table sort

Can anyone help me with getting my table to sort properly on the date field, sorting by date. I have used a solution from this (or another) forum, but it does not seem to sort, but simply create a reverse order. I need a proper sort - anyone?

Hi,

You need to change the lines in the click event of the HeaderRow.date

from

dateArray.reverse();

detailArray.reverse();

to

dateArray.sort();

detailArray.sort();

Hi Bruce,

Your suggestion for the "sort" instead of "reverse" worked perfectly on very similar code I had found somewhere else. Quick question though, is there a way to bind the row data so that it all stays together when sorting a column? (ie. all data in row 1 stays together even though Column A is being chosen as the sort criteria).  In the code that I found it will only sort the column that is being clicked, so all the other column data remains stationary and not sorted.

Here is a link to the discussion/code/pdf I am discussing (it isn't mine, but it has been the only pdf out there that contains the closest functionality for what I would like to do...I am new to the whole world of PDF Forms).

Hi Mark,

The example from John Brinkman's blog that Niall suggested seemed to do exactly what I understand you want to acheive.

Maybe if you have any questions you can ask John himself.

Good Luck

Hi all - in the end I also used John Brinkman's scripting - it works brilliantly for text, dates or numerials.

Good Morning Bruce,

Wow, great reminder for me to be a bit more diligent in my research before seeking guidance. I had only been looking at the Code/Pdf put together by Steve and not the one by John. You are absolutely correct, the one by John does do what I want. So I will disect it intensely so that I may understand it and customize it to fit my needs.

Thanks again Bruce, and thanks for not pointing out my obvious stupidity! =)

Cheers,


Mark
