    qSortIndicator issue

    Ralf Becher



      in extensions very often I need to sort dimensions myself, at least for 2nd dimension. Hence I try to figure out what sorting is given by the user. The only thing I cannot detect is when a dimension is not sorted, means sorting by load order.


      In that case according to documentation qSortIndicator should equal 'N' but it doesn't:


      So my guess is this is an API bug. Is there any workaround?

          Hi Ralf,

          You really need qSortCriterias, which is not included in the dimension info in the layout (that might be considered a bug). When you turn off sorting in the standard property panel, the client will still set qSortByLoadOrder to 1, like this:


          So QIX engine still thinks its sorted (which it is..).


          A workaround would be getting the properties and checking qSortCriterias.


          Hope this helps
