TableSorting Issue

TableSorting Issue

Hello, I'm using a jQuery TableSorter plug-in to sort a Gridview. One of the column (Dev ID) contains data in the following format and is failing to sort in ASC order on Load: 17-143,17-162,17-45, 18-12,17-65,18-2

This above data should be sort by default as: 17-45,17-65,17-143,17-162,18-2,18-12

Please assist.
