U4-10653 - List View - Cannot change "Order By" default sort order from Document Type configuration

Created by Eric Wilkinson 08 Nov 2017, 16:12:24 Updated by Sebastiaan Janssen 08 Nov 2017, 17:00:14

Relates to: U4-6003

What did you do?

Create a Document Type and Save.

Create a List View Data Type and Save.

Create a field on the Document Type using the List View and Save.

In the Settings section, go to Document Types >

Click the cog next to the document.

Click the cog to edit the currently selected List View for this property.

Expand the "Order By" dropdown.

There's the issue, the dropdown options are empty. Lots of Angular errors in the sidebar console.

Now go to the Developer section.

Go to Data Pickers >

Edit the picker and Expand the "Order By" dropdown.

Notice here all of the selected fields to show now exist in the Order By dropdown as options.

See screenshot: [https://www.screencast.com/t/ZOChJUzwXQf]

What did you expect to happen? I expected to be able to set the "Order By" default sort order from my Document Type editor in the Settings section rather than having to go back out and set it in the DataType from the Developer section.

What actually happened? The editor from my Document Type errored out in angular while trying to populate the "Order By" options on the List View editor. I was only able to get it to work from the Developer section. From the quick editor from Settings section, it didn't work.

Sounds like you don't have (all) of the correct client files copied into your site. If you've upgraded this site at some point, make sure that all the files in the Umbraco folder are of the correct version.

You didn't specify an Umbraco version, it might have been fixed in a later version, not sure?

In any case I can not reproduce this issue (see attached screenshot). Perhaps it's a better idea to ask for help on the forum at https://our.umbraco.org instead.
