(Quick Reference)



Renders a sortable column to support sorting in tables.


<g:sortableColumn property="title" title="Title" />

<g:sortableColumn property="title" title="Title" style="width: 200px" />

<g:sortableColumn property="title" titleKey="book.title" />

<g:sortableColumn property="releaseDate" defaultOrder="desc" title="Release Date" />

<g:sortableColumn property="releaseDate" defaultOrder="desc" title="Release Date" titleKey="book.releaseDate" />


Either the title or titleKey attribute is required. titleKey takes precedence when both attributes are specified resulting in the title caption being resolved against the message source. In the case when the message can not be resolved, the title is used as the title caption.
