ElementInternals: ariaSort property

The ariaSort property of the ElementInternals interface reflects the value of the aria-sort attribute, which indicates if items in a table or grid are sorted in ascending or descending order.

Note: Setting aria attributes on ElementInternals allows default semantics to be defined on a custom element. These may be overwritten by author-defined attributes, but ensure that default semantics are retained should the author delete those attributes, or fail to add them at all. For more information see the Accessibility Object Model explainer.


A string with one of the following values:


Items are sorted in ascending order by this column.


Items are sorted in descending order by this column.


There is no defined sort applied to the column.


A sort algorithm other than ascending or descending has been applied.


In this example the value of ariaSort is set to "ascending".

this.internals_.ariaSort = "ascending";
