Sorting the content of table at first showing of the table

Hi WD Experts,

I can't find the solution of this very important case

Suppose this very simple scenario:

I have master-detail relation between two tables

and I try to show the content of detail table in some order (ascending order of first column)

Also in UI I want to see the sorting icon

I do this with generating of CustomEvent in OnLeadSelect

HashMap map = new HashMap();

map.put("col", "Version");

IWDCustomEvent wdEvent = new CustomEvent("onActionSort", map, true);


but unfortunately my detail table is ordered alternately

(asc and desc order)

In WD tutorials I find the tutorial for sorting the table

but sorting is triggered by user action - I want sorting to be executed programmatically and to be executed always in asc order

    Hi Rosen,

    i suggest to use a supply-function for this. Create a corresponding supply-function method for the context node, which is the data source of the table. The method will be called immediately when the context node data is needed and can be manually triggered by invalidating the node later. Create/sort the node elements there and bind (or add) them to the node in the order desired.

    Hope that helps.
