Remarks

"Sortable" column

  • By default, a column is sortable when it is created. This option can be modified in the window editor ("General" tab of the column description).
  • When "Sortable" is checked, the user will have the ability to sort the Table control by clicking the column header.
  • If a column is sortable, an icon representing a double arrow is displayed in the column header.

Sort in a browsing Table control

A column can be sorted by the user only if:
  • The item associated with the column is a key.
  • No filter exists on this data file.
..Sortable can still return and/or be initialized to True. However, no icon is displayed in the column header and the user will not be able to sort this column.
