I've figured out how to write a custom sort for a column using:

1.sortable: {
2.  compare: function(a, b) {
3....

However, if I group a field, it doesn't seem to be using the custom sort. Am I doing something wrong or is this not a feature that is currently available?

 Thanks.

Hello Eric,

I am afraid that the sorting of the groups is not affected by the custom sorting expression set for the field. The sorting expression only sorts the items, but not the groups if the grid is grouped by that field.

Thanks Boyan. So, is there any way to custom sort the groups then?

Thanks, Eric

Hello Eric,

I am afraid that sorting of the groups is handled internally and could not be modified.
