The code use onclick() function to initiate a method that sort an array by base on the click button then it will be undergoing in a conditional statement that organize the index position of an array by the use of sortArray(). You can apply this script to your code to make your transaction faster, it is a user-friendly program feel free to modify it.

We will use JavaScript to add some new feature to the website interface by actually written into an HTML page. It is what gives your page a different interactive elements and animation that engage a user.

Getting Started:

This is the link for the bootstrap that i used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

  17. <div class="col-md-2"></div>
  18. <div class="col-md-8">
  19. <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" onclick="sortAscending()">Ascending</button> <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" onclick="sortDescending()">Descending</button>
  20.

  32. </div>
  33. </div>
  34. </body>
  35. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  36. </html>

Creating the Script

This code contains the script of the application. This code will sort the array when the button is clicked. To do this just copy and write these block of codes as shown below inside the text editor and save it as script.js inside the js directory

  1. var members = [
  2. {"firstname":"John", "lastname":"Smith"},
  3. {"firstname":"Claire", "lastname":"Temple"},
  4. {"firstname":"Steve", "lastname":"Roger"},
  5. {"firstname":"Paul", "lastname":"Miles"},
  6. ];
  7.  
  8. displayData();
  9.  
  10. function displayData(){
  11. var data = "";
  12. if(members.length > 0){
  13. for(var i=0; i < members.length; i++){
  14. data += "<tr>";
  15. data += "<td>"+members[i].firstname +"</td>";
  16. data += "<td>"+members[i].lastname+"</td>";
  17. data += "</tr>";
  18. }
  19. }
  20.  
  21. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = data;
  22. }
  23.  
  24.  
  25. function sortAscending(){
  26. if(members.length > 0){
  27. var sortArray = members;
  28.  
  29. sortArray.sort(function(a,b){
  30. if(a.lastname < b.lastname){
  31. return -1;
  32. }
  33.  
  34. if(a.lastname > b.lastname){
  35. return 1;
  36. }
  37.  
  38. return 0;
  39. });
  40.  
  41.  
  42. var data = "";
  43.  
  44. if(members.length > 0){
  45. for(var i=0; i < members.length; i++){
  46. data += "<tr>";
  47. data += "<td>"+members[i].firstname +"</td>";
  48. data += "<td>"+members[i].lastname+"</td>";
  49. data += "</tr>";
  50. }
  51. }
  52.  
  53. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = data;
  54.  
  55. }
  56.  
  57. }
  58.  
  59. function sortDescending(){
  60. if(members.length > 0){
  61. var sortArray = members;
  62.  
  63. sortArray.sort(function(a,b){
  64. if(a.lastname > b.lastname){
  65. return -1;
  66. }
  67.  
  68. else if(a.lastname < b.lastname){
  69. return 1;
  70. }else{
  71. return 0;
  72. }
  73.  
  74.  
  75. });
  76.  
  77.  
  78. var data = "";
  79.  
  80. if(members.length > 0){
  81. for(var i=0; i < members.length; i++){
  82. data += "<tr>";
  83. data += "<td>"+members[i].firstname +"</td>";
  84. data += "<td>"+members[i].lastname+"</td>";
  85. data += "</tr>";
  86. }
