Integers are sorted by first integer, not the entire integer value?

Integers are sorted by first integer, not the entire integer value?

Upon initial load, my table is displaying, I assume, in order of the primary key value however they are being displayed as follows:

1
2
27
29
3
31
4...

It's only ordering using the first integer, not the entire integer value. Is this a bug?

    I've tried recreating this here:

    ...but of course the above works, yet my table is set up exactly the same way albeit my values are dynamic.

    Hi @NJWebDesign ,

    When the table loads, the code tries to determine the data type. If it's sorting like that, it thinks the column is a string, so maybe there's a value in there that's non-numeric. You can force the type by setting columns.type to num,

    Cheers,

    Ah, yes, there's a NULL value for some records.
    Where do I edit the columns.type option? Thank you.

    Either in the columnDefs, or columns.

    Ah. That'll be me hitting a brick wall then!
    Where/how do you change these options? Are they values in a JS file that need changed?

    Sorry, I am completely new to stuff like this.

    It's when you initialise the table. This example here is setting visibility, and you can see the declarations there.
