Data page Refresh interferes with row sorting in Repeating Grid



If a repeat grid with a refresh row action is sourced from a data page that is configured to refresh on each interaction, then clicking on a row causes the data page to be refreshed.
And the row returns to its pre-sorted value.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create Section with repeat grid, sourced from data page, and refresh on each interaction.
  2. Sort the list.
  3. Click on list item.

Root Cause

A row refresh causes the data to be retrieved from the data page which is a new interaction and causes the data to refresh.

The sort order of the data page is defined by the data page configuration.


If it is a requirement to use a data page with refresh per interaction strategy as the source for a grid then this behavior should be considered as part of the design.

Solutions include:

Solution 1: Update the refresh strategy of the data page to use the "Reload if older than" and "Do not reload when" settings.

Solution 2: Disable grid sorting.

Solution 3: Using static data for the grid. For example source the data from a property that is copied from the data page.
