Sorting on a grid using PageGroup as a source is not supported



Configure a repeat grid with PageGroup as a source and enabled sorting on the columns. It throws the below error:

Error Messages

pyGridSorting:** Sorting is not supported for Page Group

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a PageGroup property.
2. Use it in a section and configure a repeat grid.
3. Enable sorting and save the section.

Root Cause

This is an expected out of the box design (OOTB) behavior. When we save a section, it trigger the OOTB function pzValidateSectionIncludes where it checks the below code that generates error. 

if(propertyInfo.isModePageGroup() && bGridSortingEnabled)
{cp_gridProps.getProperty("pyGridSorting").addMessage("Sorting is not supported for Page Group");



If sorting is mandatory we can use PageList. The below article in PDN also tells more on "How to Process Select Elements from a Page Group in a Specified Order"
