Issue with column sorting in an embedded repeating grid



User has embedded repating grid inside another repearting grid with expandable rows as control and column sort option checked. When click on the column to sort, and exception is observed on the screem. 

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a repeating grid layout to a section and add expandable rows and add a flow action.
  2. In flow action call another repeating grid.
  3. Populate some values in run time and expand the drill down sections
  4. Click on the column header for sorting.

Root Cause

Column Sorting on Repeating Grid with expandable rows is supported for displaying the flow action. But there is a restriction that it won't support column sort if the flow action contains another grid. Sorting in nested grid scenario is not supported in PRPC as parameter name conflicts during stream generation. If the expandable rows are selected PRPC still provides the option for column sort.


Perform the following local-change:

Use embed/modal dialog  for displaying the flowaction in the repeat grid.
