I'm trying to determine to best way to sort a table that contains combined data from two different sources. One of the sources is an RSS feed that I'm currently parsing from xml into my custom object and the other is fed through parsed similarly, but from different source (API). These sources are parsed and combined into an object which is then displayed on the page in a table using apex repeat. I want to think the only real feasible way to do this is collate the data once it's parsed and then apply the sort in the controller by adding a button and attaching an event to it, but this doesn't seem like it "could" be the most efficient way, but this how I would do it in .net. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated. I was almost certain that there was a built in function for this. I was able to find https://plugins.jquery.com/tablesorter/ and sorting columns in pageblocktable, so I'm going to test this.
I'll give this girl a :bump: too, http://salesforcegirl.blogspot.com/2011/03/jquery-table-sorter-meets-salesforce.html.
Thank you btw.
