JQUERY Add/remove class Issue - During Page Load

Hi experts,
I am facing an interesting some scripting issue during page load event.
am calling the below JS function when i want to sort a table either in ASC or DSC.
I am achieving this functionality by submitting the form. i tried to to sort the table based on the table sorter in JQuery. it worked very well. however there was some alignment issue that made me to use the form submission method where i will sort everything behind the browser.

Here is the issue:

HTML form element TH and its attributes:
<th  id="participant_id" class="headerSortUp addLink" 
  style="width: 20%;height: 5px; word-wrap: break-word" 
  onClick="javascript:sort ();" > Name
</th>

Open in new window

When i call the below function
function sort (){ 
  var queryString='';
  if($("#participant_id").hasClass('minusLink')){
	alert("am here in edit list desc"); 
	$("#participant_id").removeClass( 'headerSortDown' ).addClass( 'headerSortUp' );
	$('#participant_id').removeClass( 'minusLink' ).addClass( 'addLink' );	
    document.Form.editListSortOrder.val='desc';
    queryString += "&editListSortOrder=" + document.Form.editListSortOrder.val; 
	document.Form.action = "editcontributions?"+queryString;
	document.Form.submit();
  }
  else if($("#participant_id").hasClass('addLink')){
	alert("am here in ascc");
	$("#participant_id").removeClass( 'headerSortUp' ).addClass( 'headerSortDown' );
	$("#participant_id").removeClass( 'addLink' ).addClass( 'minusLink' );
	document.Form.editListSortOrder.val='asc';
	queryString += "&editListSortOrder=" + document.Form.editListSortOrder.val; 
	document.Form.action = "editcontributions?"+queryString;
	document.Form.submit();
  }  
}

Open in new window

Whenever i submit the form through conditional check, the page renders with the sorted result and the TH class attribute loads with "headerSortUp" . i.e default class Attribute all the time. so i am unable to perform the other form sorting. i can only perform ASC or DSC always. i need to perform this by toggleing header up and down .
Because of the page load with the same class attribute , am stuck and clue less. my window.load event does not have anything. even i tried adding condtional check over there. However the default class attributes comes into picture all the time. please suggest.

Thanks

Try this. I assume that all fields have id="same as name"

Also please note

1) no need for javascript: pseudo label and for sure not when you have jQuery
2) document.form.formfield.val is wrong, it is .value on DOM/Form access and .val() in jQuery

function setSort(asc) { 
  var queryString="";
  var sortOrder = asc?"desc":"asc";
  $("#participant_id")
         .toggleClass('headerSortDown',asc)
         .toggleClass('headerSortUp',!asc )
         .toggleClass('addLink',asc)
         .toggleClass('minusLink',!asc);
  $("#editListSortOrder").val(sortOrder);
  queryString += "&editListSortOrder=" + sortOrder;
  $("#form1").attr("action","editcontributions?"+queryString);
}
$(function() {
  var sortOrder = (location.search.indexOf("asc")!=-1)?"desc":"asc";
  setSort(sortOrder);
  $("#participant_id").on("click",function() {
    setSort(sortOrder);
    $("#form1").submit();
  });
  
});

Open in new window

and
<th id="participant_id" style="width: 20%;height: 5px; word-wrap: break-word">Name</th>

Open in new window

Hello,
Thank you very much for your prompt response. This is really good. However i was able to fix the issue by passing a hidden variable and check during the page load event.
Based on the value , i was able to toggle the classes. Unfortunately there was a typo also in the id  from my end.

Thanks a lot for this nice post.

Regards
Easwar

That is what this one does

$(function() {
  var sortOrder = (location.search.indexOf("asc")!=-1)?"desc":"asc";
  setSort(sortOrder);

it reads the url but can also read a field
