Location of Sort Direction Arrow

I have a dhtmlxgrid with a wide Description column (see graphic: http://www.labeldataplus.com/images/misc/dhtmlxgrid.png) and when the user sorts on the Description column, the sort direction is way to the right top of the cell.

This is fairly disconcerting to our users as they don’t see the arrow.

Is there any way to move the sort direction arrow to be near the column title text? I would like the arrow to appear right before, to the left of the column title text.

Also, is there a way to have the sort direction arrow appear when the grid first displays? I usually present my grids initially sorted on one of the columns and I would like to show that by displaying the sort direction arrow.

Thank you for your help.

Unfortunately you can’t change the position od the Sort Direction Arrow, yet.

To make the Sort Direction Arrow appear when the grid first displays you can use setSortImgState method. http://docs.dhtmlx.com/doku.php?id=dhtmlxgrid:api_method_dhtmlxgridobject_setsortimgstate

Thank you for pointing me to setSortImgState.

That’s too bad about not letting us better position the arrow. Perhaps they could center the arrow in the column so it would be a little more noticeable.

Unfortunately arrow position is hard-coded and cannot be changed without code modification.
