This function can be used to sort a ds_grid based on the values from a given column (much as you would sort files by date, size etc... in the Windows Explorer). The following image shows an example:


ds_grid_sort(grid, 3, false);

This would take all the values in the ds_grid indexed in the variable "grid" and sort them according to the values found in the 3rd column of the grid (as shown in the above image).
