PHP questions, How can a Developer make the html form sort by clicking on form? I just learned about sort functions.

I just learned about PHP Arrays and Control Structures and really excited about being introduced to this logic.

How can a Developer make the html form sort by clicking on form? Can this be driven by PHP or do I need to focus on another technology like Javascript?

I want to learn how to best approach an active form or intelligent form?

It can but to be honest it is easier and less hassle to do this via jquery on the front end, simply run all and then sort it using jquery.

It loads quicker and is a lot less hassle than having to sort(), asort(), arsort(), ksort() and the list goes on.
