Hi all,

i can't find out, how to change default sort column in a Group.

e.g. Menu -- Start -- Windows Computers ... allways sort by IP Adress.
would change this to Hostname.

Tryed out to change the SQL Statement "ORDER BY"... didn't work.

in a query.xml you have <report_sort_column>0</report_sort_column>, but in a group.xml you haven't.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
      <group_name>Windows Computers</group_name>
      <group_dynamic_select><![CDATA[SELECT distinct(system.system_id) FROM system WHERE system.man_os_group = 'Windows' AND system.man_status = 'production']]></group_dynamic_select>
      <group_description>Any items that have their status attribute set to 'production' and have their os_name attribute containing 'windows'.</group_description>
      <group_display_sql><![CDATA[SELECT system.man_icon, system.man_os_family, system.hostname, system.system_id, system.man_ip_address, system.man_manufacturer, system.man_model, system.man_serial, sys_sw_windows.windows_user_name, oa_location.location_name FROM system LEFT JOIN oa_group_sys ON system.system_id = oa_group_sys.system_id LEFT JOIN sys_sw_windows ON (system.system_id = sys_sw_windows.system_id AND system.timestamp = sys_sw_windows.timestamp) LEFT JOIN oa_location ON (system.man_location_id = oa_location.location_id) WHERE oa_group_sys.group_id = ?]]></group_display_sql>

any ideas ?

Cheers Brick

If you look in the file code_igniter/application/controllers/main.php in the function list_devices (near the end of the function) you'll see
$this->data['sortcolumn'] = '2';

Obviously this is less than ideal. I'll log a ticket so we can add a group_sort_column to the XML definitions. In the mean time, if you edit the XML and move the hostname column to column #2, it should work as intended. BTW - counting for this starts at 0 so hostname would effectively be the third column in the definition.

Ok, works fine, thanks !!

by the way, there are many
$this->data['sortcolumn'] = '2';

so you must choose this one, if anybody else want to change it
$this->data['count'] = count($this->data['query'])
$this->data['sortcolumn'] = '2';

(Line 481)

so, yes.. it would be nice to change these settings in the XML files.. would be much easier to find..

cheers Brick
