  • 1.  dynamic column sort

    Posted Aug 18, 2014 12:54 PM



    i want to sort ALL Data preserved in a database by clicking the column heading.

    normally only the loaded data in the grid (Standard 64, 128, ...) will be sorted by i want to sort all data.


    the Problem to get in Action diagram to the click on the column heading is solved. i can implement code "after the click".

    (solved with this community )


    now the next Problem is to get the Name/number/anything else of the column wich was clicked; with this Information i will call the correspond blockfetch to read all data from database and sort them...


    has anyone a solution?


    thanks in advance. best regards tobias

    thank you for your reply.


    ok that's not good. i wonder how other plex-progrmmer solved this "Problem".


    our customers always complain that the click on the Header only sorts the loaded data.


    what have you for Solutions for your customers?


    best regards, tobias

    Right the plex grid has a restriction of 32,000 records.


    With that in mind I use my own version of UIBASIC/FullGrid  which allows the user to choose at runtime (via a check box, pushbuttonlike, on the panel) if they want the grid to be a full grid load or not (the setting is saved to their ini file for the panel)


    So if it suits them they can use the very useful sort functionality of a plex grid on the Full set of data or not.
