Can't filter or sort on localized columns in report definition



Sorting and searching on report definition columns with localized values only operate on the non-localized Clipboard values.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a grid to use a localized property value for a column and enable localization in HTML tab.
  2. Create several field values for the column values with pyCaption as the field name.
  3. Sort the Column in ascending alphabetical order, the column is sorted by Clipboard values, not the displayed localized values.
  4. Try to filter the Column on a letter that is in an original value, but not the localized version. (Note: The actual filter check box label is localized.) The same behavior is observed when a control is used to localize the values of the report definition.
