Hello all,
i have the followiing Data from the Database

$Companies[$i]['company'] = "<a href=\"".$html->url('/exp/mycompanies/'.$Companies[$i]['Company']['id'])."\">".htmlentities($Companies[$i]['Company']['name1'])." ".htmlentities($Companies[$i]['Company']['name2'])."</a>";
if (!empty($Companies[$i]['Company']['phone']) && trim($Companies[$i]['Company']['phone']) != "")
$Companies[$i]['company'] .= "<br>Tel.: ".$Companies[$i]['Company']['phone'];

my Store is :

var ds = new Ext.data.Store({
reader: new Ext.data.JsonReader({
root: 'Sompanies',
fields: [

{name: 'company'}


var cm = new Ext.grid.ColumnModel([

{header: "<?php echo __('entreprise',true);?>", width:65, dataIndex: 'company',sortable: true}

var store = new Ext.data.Store({
sortInfo: { field:"company", dir:"ASC"}

In addition you can use remoteSort. If true you would have to sort it on server, if false Ext does it.
