Repeat Grid sorts date incorrectly



A Date column sorts itself in the Date format order instead of the actual date ( 10-01-14 is after 03-17-15 in the grid).

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a Date property.
2. Create a grid with date field. Format the date as MM/DD/YY.
3. Perform a sort on column.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is that there was a difference in the property type given in the property definition and the property used at the section level.


This issue is resolved by changing the property type to Date instead of Text.
