Pinned topic Sort List Tab Results via a Relationship to a View

‏2013-02-04T16:29:21Z |
I've created a dummy Object with a couple of attributes (date).
I've then created a View Object extending this dummy object.
I then created a relationship from the PM object to the view. Dropped a date field from the view object onto the list tab of the PM application.

Choosing a date or entering a date works perfectly on the list tab in the application but i'm unable to sort by it. I've ticked the option against the field on the list tab table but the title in't underlined when running the application.

Any ideas?

    CarlRoutledge,

    I can only tell you why it is not underlining the attributes you added to the list tab.

    To be sortable, the attribute must exist on the applications 'Main Object' as defined in application designer.

    Cheers John. I thought that would be the answer.

    Thanks

    Isn't there any way to make a non main object attribute a sortable  even with hard code?

    Hi Amir, Did you find any solution for the requirement through configuration or do we need to customize?

    Brian, Do you mean to say through customization?

    Yes, unsupported customization is really the only way to accomplish this. I ran into a particular situation with a client on where they had a logical business decision that couldn't seemingly be achieved due to the application they were trying to use it on (Assignment Manager). I've submitted a RFE here: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=37940

    With enough votes perhaps they'll consider it for future release.

    Thanks for the info. Any guidance on how to go about for the customization for this. It would be really helpful.
