Indicate Sort Order

Our clients would like to see an icon displayed next to the column header of a grid to indicate by which column  the grid is currently sorted by. The icon should indicate descending or ascending sort order.

We're using the List_SortColumn widget to do the sorting. I didn't see anything built in to indicate the sort order.

I noticed that there are styles that are applied to the headers called SortColumns_Sorted and SortColumns_Sortable. So maybe we can do something with font aswesome styles and jquery.

Has anyone done something like this?

Thank you.
Hi Fabian,

Unfortunately, RichWidgets doesn't provide this functionality out of the box (though I think it should). However, you may be able to circumvent this by doing some housekeeping yourself in the screen action called, possibly in combination with some CSS styling.
