Allow FireFox to work with RTL (Right To Left) laguaages

jqGrid support fully FireFox versions 3.x and Internet Explorer versions >=6. The default settings in FireFox are not compatible with RTL. In order to change this:

  1. In the url bar in FireFox type about:config and confirm the alert dialog.
  2. In the Find bar type layout.scrollbar.side
  3. Double click on it and change the value from 0 to 1

Configuring jqGrid to use only the new API

This should be done in the installation procedure following these steps:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>My First Grid</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="css/ui-lightness/jquery-ui-1.7.1.custom.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="css/ui.jqgrid.css" />
<script src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="js/i18n/grid.locale-en.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
	jQuery.jgrid.no_legacy_api = true;
<script src="js/jquery.jqGrid.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Note the callling of

<script type="text/javascript">
	jQuery.jgrid.no_legacy_api = true;

This line should be after the language file and before the jqGrid JS file

Hi, i'm new in jqgrid. I've tried client side sorting with server side paging. While the server-side paging worked fine, the sorting didn't. When i try to sort the data disappears. Any ideas?
