Parameters

Parameter

Description

name

The value of the name attribute of the cfgrid tag to sort.

columnName

The name of the column that determines the sort order.

direction

The sort direction. Must be one for these values:

  • ASC (default)
  • DESC

Returns

This function does not return a value.

Usage

This function sorts the data displayed by the grid by using a case-insensitive sort for string data, or a numeric sort for numeric data. It uses the specified column contents to determine the displayed grid order. When a grid has a remote data source, the bound CFC function that provides the data gets the column name and sort direction in the cfgridsortcolumn and cfgridsortdirection bind attributes. The CFC function must use these values and perform the sort appropriately.
