Custom Sorting

Client Side Sorting

Sometimes you may wish to override the default sorting logic which is applied uniformly to all columns.

To do so use the customSorting option. This is an object that recieves custom logic for specific columns.

E.g, to sort the name column by the last character:

customSorting: {
name: function (ascending) {
return function (a, b) {
var lastA =[ - 1].toLowerCase();
var lastB =[ - 1].toLowerCase();
if (ascending)
return lastA >= lastB ? 1 : -1;
return lastA <= lastB ? 1 : -1;

Server Side Sorting

This depends entirely on your backend implemetation as the library sends the sorting directions through the request.
