What is the correct way to use sort with MdbTableEditorDirective that has search enabled?

Here is an example of Table Editor plugin with search and sort features:

Dear @Jordan

As I see, there are some problems with this approach. We have to debug it.

So for now, there's no possibility to do that. We'll let you know when this problem will be resolved.

Best Regards,

Damian


Jordan pro premium commented a year ago

Great - thanks, @Damian Gemza!


Jordan pro premium commented 6 months ago

Is there any update on this?


Konrad Stępień staff commented 6 months ago

Hi @Jordan,

Please update the MDB package and tell me if you still have a problem.

The problem should be resolved.


Jordan pro premium commented 3 months ago

That doesn't tell me if the approach I suggested is correct.


Konrad Stępień staff commented 3 months ago

If you want to use sorting, you should do as @Damian Gemza mentioned.

There should be an update to fix this bug at this time. Please let me know if you still have a problem, if not tell me how I can reproduce the problem.


Jordan pro premium commented 2 months ago

Have you even looked at the suggested approach I clarified with @Damian Gemza ? Telling me to just add mdbTableSort doesn't clarify anything. I can't bind the sort to a static array of elements because search is being used.

Please refer to my question I posed below to @Damian 10 months ago.


Konrad Stępień staff commented 2 months ago

Could you present to me your problem again? Checking the test code works fine, and your problem description does not show me the whole situation that was 10 months ago.

Or maybe you would like me to send you this sample code from sort + search?


Jordan pro premium commented 1 months ago

Please send me the sample. Because Damian said there was an issue with the approach I took before.

Thanks

Do you need something like this? HTML

You dont have the sort included


Konrad Stępień staff commented 1 months ago

example

The code has sorting.


Jordan pro premium commented 1 months ago

Did the example not attach properly?


Jordan pro premium commented 1 months ago

I just dont see any references the mdbSort directive.


Jordan pro premium commented 1 months ago

I reviewed the code and tried it on my side. This does not have sorting.Could @Damian Gemza or @Arkadiusz Idzikowski help?


Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 1 months ago

It seems to me that there is a misunderstanding here because the topic concerns the Table Editor plugin while the presented code in many cases refers to directives from the MDB Angular library.

In version 8.2.0 we added the sort functionality to the Table Editor plugin. It is handled by the internal code of the plugin and it should work correctly with the search functionality.

@Jordan I added some example code in the answer. In case of any further problems, please consider creating a new thread, because this one is hard to maintain at this point.

Dear @Jordan

I'm afraid, that I don't understand your problem.

No matter, if you're using Table Editor plugin or your table has search enabled, you have to use mdbTableSort directive to use the sorting feature.

Best Regards,

Damian

Your sort example uses a static array of data for the table head <th [mdbTableSort]="elements" sortBy="id">ID</th> and table body <tr *ngFor="let el of elements; let i = index"> I am using the table editor plugin with the search functionality with means that the table is bound to the return of the search.

I am trying to make search and sort functionality work together so that I could search on a value and then sort the returned records. It would seem that the sort would have to be like this:

 <th [mdbTableSort]="table.performSearch(this.searchText)"
              sortBy="requestingApplicationName">
            App Name
            <mdb-icon fas
                      icon="sort">
            </mdb-icon>
          </th>

But that hasn't worked for me. Additionally, my data array has objects that contain foreign keys. I display the label value rather than the ID by doing a lookup as it iterates through the objects:

<th [mdbTableSort]="table.performSearch(this.searchText)"
          sortBy="getDataSourceLabel(item.dataSourceId)">
        Data Source
        <mdb-icon fas
                  icon="sort">
        </mdb-icon>
      </th>

I would want the search/and sort to be querying by Label values I am displaying on the table rather than the Id value stored in DB. Would this be the correct approach above?
