Topic: Datatable - Missing options (sortField, sortOrder ) in the documentation ?

cdc free asked 3 years ago

I was going to ask if it's possible "to set by default that a column is ordered 'asc' or 'desc' " ?

And I found in the source code properties that are not described in the documentation (sortField, sortOrder).

I did a test and they work.

datatable/index.js => 

class Datatable {
  constructor(element, data = {}, options = {}) {
    this._element = element;
    this._options = this._getOptions(options);
    this._sortField = this._options.sortField;
    this._sortOrder = this._options.sortOrder;

TEST datatableOptions = { color: 'dark', sortField: 'name', sortOrder: 'asc', sm: true, hover: true, pagination: false, fixedHeader: true, clickableRows: true }

Is it another documentation update problem?
