I have developed an ALV tree using cl_gui_alv_tree_simple and I want to sort on a field displayed in the table rather than a node of the tree.
ie. the branch is material-type. Open the branch and the associated material numbers display as nodes. However, I don't want to sort the display by material number, I wish to sort by material description. I have tried setting up material description as part of the sort table but it then displays as a node which I don't want. I have tried setting sort-no_out but this has no effect.
Has anyone ever achieved this? Is it even possible?
