Sorting table cells
« on: December 18, 2021, 07:40:39 PM »
Writing a table sort routine.

pondering how to handle blank rows, should the routine skip blank rows? (honor their position?)
or move them sorted items to the top of the selection area

That's tough but I vote to kill them. The breaks may be needed to separate column X data but when you resort the table by column Y that separation reason may no longer exist. ...remove.

Thanks! I'm going to move them to the bottom unless their locked, I found AcDbTableIterator with flag AcDb::kTableIteratorSkipReadOnlyContent
