Is there a tool group available to sort a table in alphabetical order that has been entered into the editor with the insert table feature? If not, is there an easy way to incorporate this?

Hi J N,

The requested functionality can be implemented like a custom tool.

You can apply and improve the solution provided at Creating a Sort Function, e.g.

       <p>
            <button onclick="sortTable();return false;">Sort</button>
        </p>


        <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1">
            <Content>
                <table id="myTable">
                  <tr>
                    <th>Name</th>
                    <th>Country</th>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Berglunds snabbkop</td>
                    <td>Sweden</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>North/South</td>
                    <td>UK</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Alfreds Futterkiste</td>
                    <td>Germany</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Koniglich Essen</td>
                    <td>Germany</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Magazzini Alimentari Riuniti</td>
                    <td>Italy</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Paris specialites</td>
                    <td>France</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Island Trading</td>
                    <td>UK</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                    <td>Laughing Bacchus Winecellars</td>
                    <td>Canada</td>
                  </tr>
                </table>

        <script>
            function sortTable() {

                table = editor.get_document().getElementById("myTable");
                switching = true;
                /*Make a loop that will continue until
                no switching has been done:*/

                    //start by saying: no switching is done:
                    switching = false;
                    rows = table.rows;
                    /*Loop through all table rows (except the
                    first, which contains table headers):*/
                    for (i = 1; i < (rows.length - 1); i++) {

                        //check if the two rows should switch place:
                        if (x.innerHTML.toLowerCase() > y.innerHTML.toLowerCase()) {
                            //if so, mark as a switch and break the loop:
                            shouldSwitch = true;
                            break;
                        }
                    }
                    if (shouldSwitch) {
                        /*If a switch has been marked, make the switch
                        and mark that a switch has been done:*/
                        rows[i].parentNode.insertBefore(rows[i + 1], rows[i]);
                        switching = true;
                    }
                }
            }
        </script>
