    I am trying to find a way of adding interactive sorting to my reports that are developed in the TRDX standalone format.
    I have searched various threads and I see how it can be done using the c# approach in visual studio, but when I try to repeat that in the standalone designer i.e. by creating a parameter and passing this into the sort field of the table it does not work.
    Any suggestions.
    This to me is a key area for improvement to make it simpler.

    Hello David,

    Currently, you can add sorting to a report using the approach described in the How to add interactive sorting to a Table item? KB article. In order to use the code snippets in the article with a TRDX report you need to Extend the Report Designer.

    We understand that there is room for improvement in the interactive sorting area. There is a feature request logged in our feedback portal - Allow interactive column sorting. The request has been approved and we are currently discussing its implementation in a future version of Telerik Reporting.

     Does this method allow for sorting without running the report again. My goal is to allow user sorting without executing the query again.

    The request has been approved and we are currently discussing its implementation in a future version of Telerik Reporting.

    Do we know any sort of ETA on this feature release?

    Hi Marcus,

    The Table item's interactive sorting is based on navigate to report actions which will cause the report to be re-processed and re-rendered, and thus all data retrieval method will be called again. If you need to allow users to interact with the data on screen, my suggestion is to use a grid control and its export options. Other approach is to use grid control to allow interaction with data s grouping, sorting, editing, and then load the same data in a report template built with the grouping and sorting settings of the grid.

    There is no ETA for the feature yet. Please use the feedback portal to raise the priority of the task by voting or logging a new request for it. Based on the demand and the required resources, features are selected for implementation.
