Table Sorting

To demonstrate the table sorting feature we'll look at a table showing the users of a user set. When we open the users list, the users are sorted by their names in alphabetical order as shown in the first image. Names can be sorted by first name or last name, the arrow will appear next to the first name or the last name depending on which is being used to sort. The last name is being used to sort in the next image.

Sorting users by last name

To sort the users using one of the other columns select the column header. All of the columns can be used to sort users in this table. If you are using a different table and are not sure if a column can be used for sorting, mouse over the column header and it will light up if it has a sorting function.

In the next image the ID Number column is being used to sort the users.

Sorting users by id number

You can reverse the sort order by selecting the column header again. The arrow next to the column sorting the table will be pointing up when the column is sorting in reverse order.
