I'm wondering whether some sort of Ajax-enabled sorting is supposed to be possible for tables within the CMS. This thread ( 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:
