I have a dataTable with multiple columns and I've set sortMode="multi". So, I click a column, let's call it "A", to sort by it, then click a second column, which I will imaginatively call "B", to sort by that, too. All is good until I change my mind and decide I would really like to sort by "B" first, then "A". Or maybe by some other column "C" then "B". I'm stuck. I have to reload the page to clear the existing sort settings.
Is there something I'm missing here, or is it not possible to reset those choices except via a page reload?
implement external sorting so you'll get full control at sorting functionality. example at richfaces-demo.
