Sorting doesn't work in grid with pagelist as source



User has configured a repeating grid with the source as embedded pagelist and enabled "Allow sorting on columns" in the grid operations tab, also column level sorting is enabled.

The pagelist that is specified in the source of repeating grid has data access configuration as "Refer to Data Page".

While processing the flow, when user tries to sort on the columns, it does not get sorted.

Error Messages

No error message on the screen but the sorting on columns does not happen.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Process the flow to the point that contains the repeating grid.
2. Click on the column headers to sort.
3. Observe that the sorting doesn't happen.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior and works as per design when the data access for the pagelist property is given as "Refer to data page" as the data will not get sorted in the clipboard when data access is "Refer to data page".


If the data has to be sorted on the clipboard and get that reflected on the UI, use "Copy to data page" as the data access for pagelist property that acts as a source for the repeating grid.
