How to reverse the initial sort order


I have only just found ActiveWidgets and they might be about to change my life!!!

However, I AM NOT A PROGRAMMER and although I can make the small changes needed to customize AW for my uses, I am struggling to change the sort order.

I have based my source code on the examples you get when downloading the source and kept them (at this stage) in /examples/grid directory.

All my files come in reverse date order...

=======Source Data begins
"09/22/05 12:49:22","SPF","xxxx@xxxx.edu","xxxx@xxxx.co.uk","Re: Phharmaceutical Check thi s Offr","Deleted","Sender is forged (SPF Fail)"
"09/22/05 15:15:36","SPF","xxxx@xxxx.com","xxxx@xxxx.co.uk","Does 8incches Enough 4 U? H6ZE5","Deleted","Sender is probably forged (SPF Softfail)"
======Source Data ends

And the sort works perfectly when I click twice on the heading, except I would like it to so automatically on loading.

Source code below...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

// create ActiveWidgets data model - text-based table
var table = new Active.Text.Table;

// provide data URL - plain text comma-separated file

// start asyncronous data retrieval

// define column labels
var columns = ["Date/Time", "SPF", "Sender", "Recipient", "Message", "Action", "Reason"];

// create ActiveWidgets Grid javascript object
var obj = new Active.Controls.Grid;

// provide column labels
obj.setColumnProperty("texts", columns);

// provide external model as a grid data source

// write grid html to the page
