Thanks, Richard & Alex - sometimes I get stuck because I don't expect how simple LiveCode can make something. So experimenting with a field, this works fine:
put fld "source" into tSource
sort tSource dateTime
put tSource into fld "result"
Now - is there a way to adapt that for a data grid?
Looking at http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/datagrid/l/7330-how-do-i-customize-column-sorting I tried putting this in the script for the data grid:
on SortDataGridColumn pColumn
sort pColumn dateTime
..but nothing seems to change - is there a step I'm missing? Does the column need to get reloaded somehow?
The lines in the column have the abbrev date concatenated with the long time, for example: Wed, Nov 13, 2013 8:19:15 PM
Thanks again for any help -
