Add to Favorites
A simple method of making your HTML tables sortable.
Product Details

This JavaScript code can be used to convert tables in ordinary HTML into sortable ones by associating each title column with an onClick event to automatically sort the data rows. No additional coding is necessary. All you need to do is give your table an ID field, include the sortTable.js file and call initTable in your document's onLoad method.

Works for me!

This works very well for me, so far. I found it quite easy to use, and had no problem making minor modifications (color schemes for example). Very nice.
Nice idea, but too slow or buggy

The author provided 3 versions, two work but are too slow (noticeably slow for tables with just 3 rows, quite slow for table with 40 rows even on powerful computers, unusable for table with a couple hundred rows). The 3rd version did not work, and I found it still quite slow after bug fixing that got it going. This version also lacks multi-table support and will not work for even slightly complicated cell content like hyperlinks. So all 3 versions are not usable for anything but small tables.
keep formating

a good idea would be to keep the formating for cells.
