jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxGrid is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that shows data in tabular form. Moreover, it renders full support for connecting with data, as well as paging, grouping, sorting, filtering, and editing.

The sortable property is used to enable or disable the sorting property of the displayed jqxGrid. It is of type Boolean and the default value is false.

Syntax:

  • It is used to set the sortable property.
$('Selector').jqxGrid({ sortable: true});
  • It is used to set return the sortable property.
var sortable = $('Selector').jqxGrid('sortable');
