Hi Vasim,

Did you mean column reordering by users by any chance?

vasim walikar commented on Sep 11

yes

Hi Vasim,

If you use the latest Datagrid package, its DataTables widget supports column reordering by default. Please try it and let us know if you have any difficulty. Thanks!

Yes column reordering by default is exist in package, but we need to save this column order, which user can get back same column order even session destroid or page refreshed, i hope you got what we required

Oh, that's quite a challenge. We don't have any on-the-plate solution to the task but I could give some guidance.

You still allow default column reordering with DataTables. Add a button saying "Save column order". When a user clicks the button you grab DataTables' columns' current order (DataTables api is really great). Then send a request (ajax, post, get, etc) to the server to save that column order for the user.

Later when the user opens the page again you could retrieve the their last saved column order and use it to construct the DataTables accordingly.

Let us know if you need help with any detail. Thanks!
