Sort items when groups are shown

Post by Mex »

Hi Timo!

Is there a way to sort items, when groups are shown?
Sorting works fine, when groups are not show.

Hi,

It works for me on Windows 7 SP1. I just took the Events sample, put a call to ExLvwU.SortItems into the Form_Click handler, started the sample and renamed some items. After clicking onto the form, the items have been sorted correctly. I tried this a couple of times with different namings.
Which version of Windows are you trying with? Can you create a small sample app that demonstrates the problem?

Hi,

I also tested your events sample, but same problem there.
If groups are enabled and you click column header, items are not sorted, but when you set ShowGroups=False, then sorting works fine.

In my app i use workaround - after click and sorting I set showgroups to false and back to true :)
And of course when alternating row background color is used, then we need to "redraw" all items.

Ok, so which version of Windows are you using? XP?

Seems like Windows XP simply does not support it. I checked my code and it is the same for Windows XP as for Windows 7. I also opened Windows Explorer on Windows XP, activated groups and played around with sorting. If groups are activated, Windows Explorer does not support sorting neither.
