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 sortmode property is used to set or get if the displayed jqxGrid can sort an individual or multiple columns. It is of type string and its by default value is one.

Syntax:
