Sorting Problem in an integrated view

Hi,
i have a display only one category integrated view. i want to sort on the second visible column but it doesn't work. It does not even if any other (except the first categorized but not visible column) column is sorted. This problem does not occur if it is a normal integrated view without the display only one category property.

Do you have an idea?

Thanks,
Koray.

Back to the question: am I wrong with my resorting twisty assumption?

Which Notes/Domino version do you use?

Hello Koray,

look at single category option views same as to search results.
In both cases is a sorting of resulting rows not meaningful.

I don't understand what you mean. Lets say that i have 3 columns in my view. the first is categorized but not visible (because of the single category view) the second column must not be sorted and the third must. But when i open the view on the web it does not sort on the third column.

Am i clear?

Did u try removing the sorting on first two columns.

OK,

your first column is categorized but not visible because this one value was the selector for ONE of the categories. And this is what I mean it works like search: the given category is a search for the view to return only documents for this one category value.
Next after this column you have one unsorted and after this one, other sorted column. They will of course be sorted as you expect when shown to you. BUT, the column title twisty for RESORTING does tot yield the desired resorting. FULL STOP.

I use singleCategory views in some applications of mine to display a subset of documents, depending on who logs on for example and don't have the problem with sorting.
Of course I always sort based on second column (which would be logical for the user too, this way He will more intuitively find the document he is looking for).

Have you tried to add the third column as second column, sort on this second column and thide the second column for display ?
That way you sort on the second column (or the first column if you don't count the single category column), but since it doesn't show you will get results the way you want.
(I haven't tested this, but I think this might be a bypass that works).
Let me try and get back to you in a few minutes (thought I'd type my suggestion in anyway)

Okay, just created a small test app with the following :
Form with the following fields:
Category1 : text field
Category2 : text field
Category3 : text field
$$Return : computed for display text field with the following formula:
"[/" + @Subset(@DbName;-1) + "/Categories?OpenView&RestrictToCategory=" + Category1 + "]";
This field will automatically show the categorized view 'Categories' restricted to the first category of the document that is being saved.
On the form is an action "Save & Close" to save the document and then go to the location as in $$Return. The formula for this button is :
@Command([FileSave]);
@Command([FileCloseWindow]);

The view is set to be sorted, categorized on the first column, which displays the field Category1.
The second column is not sorted and displays the second field, Category2.
The third column is sorted and displays the third field, Category3.

For testing purposes I also included an action to create a new document from the view. Formula is simply :
@Command([Compose]; "Categories"); where Categories is the name of the form as described above.

When using this little demo app I concluded that when you display the view, restricted to a single category the sorting of the view is still maintained (as I would expect, since I haven't had any problems with this in my former applications).

Regards,

JM

Hello Koray, hello JM,

Of course is no problem that categorized views are sorted in the following columns.

But I understood the question that Koray has problems with column resorting twisties.
And nothing else is what I say: as soon as you resort a column you loose categories.
Do you have something to add to this statement JM :-)

By the way: this problem is solved in R5.0.9: there are no more column twisties in single category views for resorting :-)

If you Koray still state that you can not display the second column sorted in a single category view, then would be interesting for further investigations what the column formula for this second sorted column is.

So long,
Zvonko

PS: Koray, are you Turkish?

There's no mention of resorting in the question, so how am I supposed to know that????????

I guess zvonko deducted from your name that you are Turkish :-)

Normally I can only look inside the head of my buddy JM :-)

Koray, I am Macedonian. My grandfathers official traffic language was Turkish. Many words our days are still Turkish rooted.
I do like to have some insight to community members beside this scarious expert topics (only with them who like it too :-)

We were two to resolve this question. I am on a different mission now but the other person has resolved the problem. She explained to me how to do it but it was complicated, i don't remember.
So thanks to every body who has tried to help me.

See you soon on this forum,
Koray.

PS Zvonko, do you still live in macedonia? I live now in france.

This is very strange. This shouldn't happen.
Normally you can sort all columns in a view if you want to and everything stays the same.
Are there any hidden columns or other special columns?

Maybe you could specify in detail a description per column (formula, sort options, ...).
Best is to open a new question, since experts rarely come back to closed questions.
