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 sort event is triggered when the sort order or sort column of the specified jqxDataTable is changed.

Syntax:

$('Selector').on('sort', function (event) {  
   var args = event.args;

   // Sort column
   var sortcolumn = args.sortcolumn;  

   // Sort order:
   // { 'ascending': true or false,
   //     'descending': true or false }
   var sortdirection = args.sortdirection;
});
