Re: GTK2::TreeView column with sortable date column

I'm not sure if this is feasible for your setup, but why not just have
a second, hidden column with the numerical form of the date and tell
your 'stringy date' column to sort via it?

That's what I've got for one of my apps - otherwise you have to
convert all your rows to a numeric form every time you sort anyway.

I've implemented a TreeView which works well. One of the many columns is a

I'm looking for advice on how to sort a TreeView column that contains dates;
where the date is formatted (ex: Tue Feb 9, 8:58pm 2010) in a fairly typical
alphanumeric string.

An alpha sort is obviously not correct when looking at date information.

Does anyone know of a way to implement an ascending/descending "date" sort
of a TreeView column which contains dates?

I know I can easily convert to a completely numeric date but I'd rather not.

Thanks in advance.
