    List View Sort By with Custom Field

    Hello All, I am currently rebuilding the uHangout website and I have the videos stored in Umbraco inside a List View as child nodes.

    I have modified the list view to show a property from the Video document type - 'views' however when it is displayed in the list I can not click on the header to sort the items by the amount of views as expected.

    The field is stored as a label, as an periodic import tool imports the videos from YouTube into Umbraco as nodes and the view count should be read only and not modified by me in the backoffice of Umbraco.

    Is there are reason why I cannot sort my videos in the list view by custom property of views?

    Many Thanks,

    Hey Warren

    Please refer to this issue regarding sorting on custom properties in the list view.

    - Cheers

    Yes, the inability to sort by custom properties is a major deficiency in the (otherwise great) ListView. Hopefully the PR in the bug will address this for 7.3.

    This HAS to be a top priority. Just at face value it doesn't seem it should be that big of a coding challenge, no?

    OH, actually... yeah, it is more challenging than you might initially guess as you can have multiple docTypes in the list view, so what do you do if an item doesn't have your sorting property?

    To be perfectly honest, I would be fine with this: IF you set a node structure so it's children show as a list view THEN you can only allow one docType below the container node. It may sound a little odd, but basically your list view would ignore other docTypes below the container node for listview purposes. (The editor could alert you if there were other docTypes "hidden" by the list view).

    Does that make sense?

    In practice, if you want a list view for a folder, it's unlikely you would want to store multiple docTypes there in any case, no?

    Is there any update on this issue? Looks like it's not working in the latest Umbraco version.
