Sorting is not working in Grid Repeat Layout



You are using a Grid Repeat layout with a Report Definition as the source. Sorting does not work for all columns. You do not see the sorting icon beside the columns.

Error Messages

No Error Message. 

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Drag a Grid Repeat Layout in a section rule
  2. Select Report Definition as a Source
  3. Enable the Sorting Checkbox

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems code. Check the sorting check box in the layout column properties. After doing this the sorting icon is visible but it is not doing the actual work.


The explanation for this behavior is as follows:

In the case of simple Top/Bottom N list reports, we will explicitly order the result set only on rank number. The sort order specified for each list field on the report definition will be ignored.
