columns.sortable.compare Function

A JavaScript function for comparing the values.

  • If the first argument is less than the second one, returns -1.
  • If both arguments are the same, returns 0.
  • If the first argument is greater than the second one, returns +1.

Example - defining the custom compare function

$("#gantt").kendoGantt({
