Problem with sorting

I have a table with teh follwoing initialisation:




$("#TfdOrderTable_3").dataTable ({
"aoColumns": [
null,
{"sType": "string"},
{"sType": "uk_date"},
{"sType": "uk_date"},
{"sType": "uk_date"},
{"sType": "uk_date"},
{"sType": "uk_date"},
{"sType": "string"},
{"sType": "string"},
{"sType": "numeric"}]
})
});

Extended_sort.js is the plugin code for the uk date sort.

The string fields sort as expected, but the other columns don't sort at all.

any ideas?

    Hi tcardinal,

    The basic idea looks like it should be absolutely fine. I wonder if there is a Javascript error occurring somewhere if there is no sorting at all happening? Possibly something that the date sorting plug-in is expecting isn't in the required format and it is throwing an error? If you have a look at the Javascript console in your web-browser it will tell you.

    I've put together a very basic little example here: http://live.datatables.net/ojomil/edit which shows how it should work. If you click on the "render" button you'll get the table which is sortable on all columns.

    Regards,
    Allan

    Thanks Allan. A quick look in the debugger did the trick there was some formatting around the values.

    Cool - no worries, and good to hear it's working well for you now :-)
