Unable to sort the PyLabel in DataTableClassEditor list view



Unable to perform a sort on the pyLabel field in DataTableClassEditor list view. Integer is stored in the pyLabel property of type text.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Store an integer in the pyLabel property.
  2. Include the property in DataTableClassEditor list view.

Root Cause

List views and Summary views are deprecated in the current versions of the Pega application. It is recommended to use a report definition instead.
The pyLabel was considered as text though it contained integer values. Hence, string sort was carried out. 


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Use a report definition instead of an embedded list.
  2. In the report definition, add the function to convert text to integer values in the pyLabel column for attain number sort functionality.
