Topic: MDBDatatable Case Insensitive Sorting

kalmservices premium asked 2 years ago


**Expected behavior*_When sorting a column on an MDBDatatable object, it should sort alphabetically regardless if the first word starts with an uppercase or lowercase letter.

_*Actual behavior*_Instead, when you try to sort a column it sorts first by uppercase letters alphabetically and then by lowercase letters alphabetically. This puts your results into two separate groups, and you have to know if your result starts with an upper or lower case letter when searching results for your record.

_*Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)**

In this image, you can see where I'm sorting by the Name column and it sorts all capital letters before all entries that start with a lowercase letter. This is just passing json into the standard MDBDatatable component

This is the component I'm using

<MDBDataTable
                        entries={5}
                        displayEntries={false}
                        sortable={true}
                        searching={false}
                        info={false}
                        noBottomColumns
                        hover
                        data={items}
                    />

Did you try to use version 5 of Datatable?


kalmservices premium commented 2 years ago

Yes, the same issue occurs with MDBDatatablesV5. I changed nothing in the code except swapping the component to V5, and while the style changes, the sorting is still broken.

Ok, thanks for the report. If it is broken we have to fix this issue. I added task to fix this.
