Sort Table in user macro

Hi all,

we have a user macro that iterates the groups and shows the members of the group. Is there a chance that the table shows the results in a sorted order? The tables only consist of 2 columns group and users and we would like to sort the usernames.

Another point is, can we set the width of the columns?

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Bruce,

A colleague of mine wrote this user macro which enables column sorting on tables within a wiki page. It's relies on jQuery to do this, but that's included with Confluence anyway.

You could simply register the macro and add it in the page where your table is, or extract the code you need and add it into your user macro so that the sort is applied automatically.

Cheers,

Charles

Confluence 4.3 has basic sorting. Table-plus macro has more advanced sorting and customization of column attributes. Table-plus also has a sortColumn parameter to auto sort on first display.

Thanks for your input. I must add we are running Confluence 4.3.2 and have the basic sorting but creating the table always starts with an unsorted table and I would like to have it sorted in the beginning.

Is there any way to achieve this?
