View Full Version : Filtering and sroting a grid without using col headers

17 Mar 2009, 7:06 AM
Is it possible to sort the data in grids (JSON grid using remote sort) with controls I've added to the page manually such as check boxes, buttons and drop downs?

Reason being, I want to style my grid so it doesn't actually look like a grid at all; more of a results list from a search that people can then filter with a set of controls above the grid. It's just a little more user friendly for those that aren't technically capable and crap their pants at things as "technical" as a grid :D

you certainly can. look at the API for the Ext.data.Store

Try looking at the Ext.DataView if you don't want some of the heavy features of teh grid

OK, I've got the sorting down but filtering is proving to me more tricky. Are there any examples out there I may have missed in the standard places?
