Hey Experts. I have a table I am generating through Javascript from a JSON string and am printing it out into a HTML table, what I am trying to figure out is how I can sort the table. I tried a few different things and downloaded the library and css files here. sortable.js  Here is the link to the test page I am working on this at. test  Basically I want to be able to sort this table by price, ascending or descending. Though if I could sort by clicking the column heading that would be good also.  Here is the code I am working with. It seems to be picking up the CSS and the headers look like they are clickable but I can not click them to sort the columns. I did find some places that suggested using Sortable.init() with this but I do not understand how it is related. If anyone understands what I am missing here please let me know, thanks.

After you have got the json and built the table you need to call

Sortable.init()

Thanks, It worked to put Sortable.init() after the table. I had added it to the code before but I must have had it in the wrong place so it did not work. Thanks for the clarification.
