Sorting symbol not displayed on PageList Properties



While sorting columns, the sorting symbol is not displayed at columns with a property from the PageList-property. The sorting works fine. The sorting symbol is present at all other columns (for example, text-properties).

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create two data classes (for example: MyDataClass1,MyDataClass2).
2. Create a PageList-Property of type MyDataClass2 in MyDataClass1.
3. Create a repeat grid which refers a pagelist property of type MyDataClass1.
4. In the first column add a text-property from MyDataclass1
5 In the second column add a text-property from the first element of the pageList-Property (.MyDataClass2(1).MyProperty)

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. The issue occurs because the column property is compared with XSS filtered value of sortProperty to decide whether to show the sort icon.


This issue is scheduled to be resolved in Pega 7.1.8 release.
