Welcome to the Sort a Matrix tool! This tool allows you to sort the values in a matrix/table by selecting a specific column.

  3. Click on the “Sort Matrix” button.
  4. The tool will rearrange the rows of the matrix/table based on the selected column’s values.

Functionality of the Tool:

The tool utilizes JavaScript to extract the values from the HTML table, sort them based on the selected column, and update the table accordingly.

Benefits of Using This Tool:

  1. User-Friendly Interface: The tool provides a simple interface with input fields and a dropdown menu, making it easy to use.
  2. Dynamic Sorting: You can dynamically sort the matrix/table based on different columns, allowing for versatile data analysis.
  3. Real-Time Updates: Sorting the matrix updates the table instantly, providing immediate feedback on the rearranged data.
  4. Customizable: You can input your own values into the matrix and select any column for sorting, offering flexibility in data manipulation.


Q: Can I sort the matrix in ascending or descending order? A: Currently, the tool sorts the matrix in ascending order only. However, you can modify the JavaScript code to implement descending sorting if needed.

Q: How does the tool handle ties in sorting? A: If there are ties (i.e., equal values) in the selected sorting column, the tool maintains the original order of the rows within the tied values.

Q: Can I use this tool for matrices with a different number of columns? A: Yes, you can modify the HTML table structure and JavaScript code to accommodate matrices with a different number of columns. Just ensure that the input fields and sorting dropdown are aligned correctly.
