Error description

  • Multiline string field with constant list with autocheck
    unchecked in the forms, is still sorting the list in cqweb
    9.0.1.3 but eclipse client doesn't sort the list. The list
    shouldn't be sorted in cqweb too.
    
    Steps to repro
    In CQ Designer,
    1. Define a multi-line string field and its choice list is
    Constant List.
    2. Add a List Box control on the form, linked to the multi-line
    string field.
    3. Uncheck the Auto Sort check box in the property sheet of the
    List Box control in the forms section.
    
    In CQ Web,
    1. Create a record with the List Box control.
    2. Edit the List Box control.
    
    Expected result:
    The constant list should keep the values in the order it is
    listed and not sort.
    Actual result:
    The constant list is sorted in an ascending order.
