#2147 closed defect (wontfix)

Sorting HTML fields in Filtering Table

Reported by: guest Owned by: Tom Trenka
Priority: high Milestone: 0.9
Component: Dijit Version: 0.4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


When you sort information in an html field, it sorts alphabetically on the entire contents of the field - including the html tags. So, something like <a href="/forums/">Cindy</a> appears before something like <a href="/gallery/">Adam</a>

I think that by default, it should strip html tags before the sort is performed. I hacked in a simple html stripping routine and call it on any cell that is markup before the sort and now my html sorts by the value inside the tags and not the tags.

I'm fairly certain this is actually a bug with dojo.html.renderedTextContent, but this has been noted before.

This will all be redone for the new Table widget so presumably this won't be an issue anymore, but I'll leave the bug open until that widget is completed, as a reminder to check this issue.

FilteringTable? is not being ported to either Dijit or DojoX, so I'm closing the bug.
