Alphabetise the Query Results field on the Portal

Tony_CollettTony_Collett Cireson Support Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
When loading a Request Offering, every time every query result field is sorted entirely randomly. 

It would be great if this was sorted Alphabetical Order (A-Z) by default

It should sort from the left-most column. 

To add to this, I have created a simple javascript which sorts all Query Result fields (If it has 1 column, it sorts that column. If it has multiple columns, it sorts the right-most column). It's not perfect, but it's a good start point.

    I've created something similar before which will sort query results by the first column. The following javascript should do what you are looking for. It's a bit longer than what you have, but it also works with query results that depend on previous answers to populate the dataset. 

    $(window).load(function () {
        if (document.URL.indexOf("/SC/ServiceCatalog/RequestOffering/") === -1) { //Only worry about request offering forms
        //Get all objects that hold our kendo grids.
        var divGridControls = $("div[data-control=checkboxGridByCriteria");
        for (var i = 0; i < divGridControls.length; i++) {
            //Re-get this element as an object.
            var thisKendoGrid = $(divGridControls[i]).getKendoGrid();
            var firstColumnName = thisKendoGrid.columns[0].field;
            //var firstColumnTitle = thisKendoGrid.columns[0].title;
            var numberOfRows = thisKendoGrid.dataSource.data().length
            if (numberOfRows > 0) 
                //This grid control already has data. 
                //Sort this grid, using the first column. This will sort only once, after initial page load, whether items exist in the grid or not.
                  sort: { field: firstColumnName, dir: "asc" },
                  page: 1,
                  pageSize: 20,
                //If this request offering grid uses a previous question filter, then the initial sort won't work. Set up a one-time sort event. 
                thisKendoGrid.one("dataBound", function (e){
                    //Note to self. the dataBound fires after the rows are returned, and dataBinding fires before. 
                    var thisEventKendoGrid = e.sender;
                    var firstEventColumnName = thisEventKendoGrid.columns[0].field;
                    var firstEventColumnTitle = thisEventKendoGrid.columns[0].title;
                    //console.log("Databinding changed in event. Sorting by first column '" + firstEventColumnName + "', '" + firstEventColumnTitle + "'");
                      sort: { field: firstEventColumnName, dir: "asc" },
                      page: 1,
                      pageSize: 20,

    This worked like a charm guys.  We have a series of dependent MP queries, that did filtering,  Cleaned it up nicely!

    Since out update to V6, the solution by Joivan has not worked.  any suggestions?
  • AJ_WittenbrinkAJ_Wittenbrink Customer IT Monkey ✭
    ok I figured it out, change this line
        var divGridControls = $("div[data-control=checkboxGridByCriteria");
    var divGridControls = $("div[data-control=checkboxGridByCriteriaOld");

    Seems like both the scripts work, but only for the first Query Result box. I have a RO where I have 2 Query Result boxes on separate pages using the Layout function of the Advanced Request Offering, and the second box is not affected by the script.

    Would be ideal if you could manage how these are sorted through the ARO.
