Using DataSource and outputting to html
I would like to use the DataSource to store the results of the JSON object that I retrieve using an AJAX query. I would also like to filter, sort the results of the datasource on various attributes.
I don't want to use a datatable as an output format. I want to output the data in a row format something like a search engine result looks like (there would be checkboxes on the right to do sorting and filtering). I had two questions:
i) What's the best way to do the sorting and filtering on various attributes?
ii) What's the best practice on outputting the DataSource output to html?
Any examples would be appreciated.
