TinyTable JavaScript Table Sorter – 2.5KB

Table Sorter

This updated table sorter script is easy to use and feature packed at only 2.5KB. New features include column highlighting, optional pagination, support for links, and date/link parsing. A few other features are alternate row highlighting, header class toggling, auto data type recognition and selective column sorting. More updates will follow soon.

To initialize a table sorter follow the pattern below:

var sorter = new TINY.table.sorter('sorter');
sorter.head = 'head'; //header class name
sorter.asc = 'asc'; //ascending header class name
sorter.desc = 'desc'; //descending header class name
sorter.even = 'evenrow'; //even row class name
sorter.odd = 'oddrow'; //odd row class name
sorter.evensel = 'evenselected'; //selected column even class
sorter.oddsel = 'oddselected'; //selected column odd class
sorter.paginate = true (false); //toggle for pagination logic
sorter.pagesize = 15 (20); //toggle for pagination logic
sorter.currentid = 'currentpage'; //current page id
sorter.limitid = 'pagelimit'; //page limit id

Before initialization, a new table sorter object must be created. The parameter taken by TINY.table.sorter is the variable name used for the object. The object.init function takes 2 parameters: the id of the table and the initially sorted column index (optional). If you want to exclude a column from sorting add class=”nosort” to the appropriate table header. Table styling is completely customizable via the CSS.

This script has been tested in all major browsers and is available free of charge for both personal or commercial projects under the creative commons license. Community support is available here. Paid support is also available, contact me for details.
