I'm wondering whether some sort of Ajax-enabled sorting is supposed to be possible for tables within the CMS. This thread ([url]http://www.silverstripe.com/site-builders-forum/flat/8856[/url]) mentions something similar...and I'm looking for something along the same lines.

I finally got my complextablefield working, and I'm able to sort the displayed info through the template using this:
function ActiveReps() {
return $this->getComponents('Reps', "ID", "Composer ASC");

but I need the table in the actual CMS to be organized alphabetically (by the first field, "Composer."

What file(s) should I edit to accomplish this? thank you!

you can simply add a constructor-parameter - i've updated the wiki page to explain this a bit more clearly: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tablelistfield#sorting
