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 jqxDataTable is used for reading and displaying the data from the HTML Table. This is also used to display data from various data sources like XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The columnReordered event is triggered when the column’s order of the specified jqxDataTable is changed.

Syntax:

$('Selector').on('columnReordered',  
  function (event) {

    // Event args
    var args = event.args;
   
    // Column data field
    var dataField = args.dataField;

    // Old index
    var oldIndex = args.oldIndex;

    // New index
    var newIndex = args.newIndex;
});
