Sorting columns with special data types

If a column should consider special data types for sorting (e.g., date, number), you can add a class attribute in the header cell of that column. Please note that a header cell is always defined by an exclamation mark ("!").

{| class="wikitable filterable"
! class="number" |Col A


Col A

Possible values for the class attribute are:

  • string
  • integer
  • number
  • date

Filtering table columns

The special filter layout of a table is only applied in view mode.

To filter the values in the table, click on the header of the column to filter and select "Filter" from the dropdown menu. In the input field that opens, type in the filter text.
