Hi,

I have a grid view that contains

  •  a decimal column with values (1-4), "STATUS", invisible
  • a image column (STATUS_IMAGE), visible,  that represents the STATUS values with the corresponding image (green flag, yellow flag etc.)

Whenever the user clicks the column head of the STATUS_IMAGE column I programmatically change the sort expression to STATUS so that the images get sorted according to their underlying values. This all works fine, with one exception: The sort glyph is now (correctly) on the invisible STATUS column and is hence also invisible. The visible STATUS column that the user (he thinks ...) is sorting by does not get a sort glyph.

I appreciate this is logically correct, but I'd still like to present the user with the "proper" sort glyph on the visible column. Any way to fake the glyph, maybe?

Thx & kind regards
Frank

Never mind, figured it out: When the sort is made on BOTH columns then obviously both get the sort glyph. Duh!
Thank you for listening to my ramblings.

Thx
Frank
