StringGrid with sorting by numbers, date, strings
« on: August 05, 2010, 09:03:44 am »
Hi people.

Is there any component for Lazarus which supports sorting collumns? I used to use NiceGrid (it's component from Delphi - http://www.priyatna.org/nicegrid.php) but i'm not sure if something similar exists here.
Bad news: Time flies.
Good news: You are the pilot.

Why not port that component? The code doesn't seem to be tied to Windows API very much.

I've never done that. Is it hard to do?

Depend on how its coded in general. For this case, it seems easy. I'll try as well. Use Tools->Convert Delphi package to Lazarus package (use daily snapshot version, the converter has grown MUCH since 0.9.28.2).

Standard StringGrid has sorting capability built in, by default it can sort strings in either ascending or descending order, check this link for documentation: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Grids_Reference_Page#Sorting_Columns_or_Rows
