Custom list sorting in sharepoint

Hi Experts,
I have a custom checkbox list, which display checkboxes in the list..this is a custom list but when i click on column names it is not sorting the column based on the column which is clicked.

I need to incorporate this sorting functionality as we have in normal sharepoint list. Please let me know..urgent

i figured it out, Goto SiteAction --> Modify View --> Style --> if its default (change it to anyother style) go back and see you will get sorting functionality for your custom list using sharepoint oob

here is a artical by microsoft that describes how to create a new view. You are able to create many views of the same list , giving each one a name that appears in the dropdown list.
 When creating the view in the sort section (near thee bottom) ,  select your custom fielld , you whish it to be sorted on. then save the view .
I hope this helps
