sortAscending - Boolean value indicating if this sorted (as indicated by a set sortPriority) column is ascending.

filterBy - Value expression defining the object this column will filter by.

filterValue - Value of the filter input field. The input that will be used to filter the objects defined by filterBy.

filterOptions - A collection of SelectItem objects for use as filter choices.

filterMatchMode - Method of String comparison used to evaluate the filter, types available include: "contains", "exact", "startsWith", "endsWith"

rowspan - Defines the number of Row objects this Column should span. Only relevant on a Column used inside a ColumnGroup and Row component.
