    12.0 null exception on resort()

    Hi Isomorphic,

    can you please take a look at this? On loading I have null exception on line 109 (resort();).
    (v12.0p_2018-08-23/PowerEdition Deployment (built 2018-08-23))

                                SortSpecifier[] ss = ((ListGrid) event.getFiringCanvas()).getSort();

                                resort();
                            }
                        });
                    }
    
                    @Override
                    protected Canvas createRecordComponent(final ListGridRecord record, Integer colNum) {
                        String fieldName = this.getFieldName(colNum);
                        if (fakeLGFName.equals(fieldName)) {
                            String topicName = record.getAttributeAsString("scientificName");
    
                            Label testLabel = new Label();
                            testLabel.setContents(topicName);
    
                            VLayout vLayout = new VLayout(6);
                            vLayout.setHeight(50);
                            vLayout.setWidth100();
                            vLayout.setMembers(testLabel);
    
                            return vLayout;
                        } else
                            return null;
                    }
                };
    
                vL.addMembers(lg);
    
                addItem(vL);
            }
        }
    }
    So I think this is a bug, because this ListGrid has sort-specifier array.

    What are you trying to achieve with this call? As shown, it would do nothing. The data will already be in the specified sort order.

      Hi Isomorphic,

      I think the reason for the resort() call is this:

      ResultSet.getUpdatePartialCache():
      Code:
      newly added rows will be added at either the end (first preference) or beginning of the dataset if that part of the dataset is cached and was most recently requested. If not, the new row is added at the end of the most recently requested contiguously cached range
      Also, the sort indicator is removed.

      This matches these docs:
      ListGrid.resort():
      Code:
      If a list has become unsorted due to data modification or a call to unsort(), ......
      You can reproduce this in this sample:
      Code:
      isc.ListGrid.create({
          ID:"dsListGrid", 
          width: "100%",
          height: "100%",
          autoFetchData: true,
          dataSource: "supplyItem",
          canEdit:true
      });
      and sorting by SKU, then editing a row and changing SKU. The ListGrid sort will be removed.

      In order to have the data sorted again, you need a call to resort().

      Please note that this sample code runs into a endless request-loop, so this might not the correct way to do this after all:
      Code:
      isc.ListGrid.create({
          ID:"dsListGrid", 
          width: "100%",
          height: "100%",
          autoFetchData: true,
          dataSource: "supplyItem",
          canEdit: true,
          sortField: "SKU", 
          dataChanged: function () {
              dsListGrid.resort();
          }
      });
      Best regards

        We don't resort automatically for a reason: it would move the record out of view, which is mysterious.

        Adding an automatic resort() here creates a worse user experience, and as you noted, an infinite loop.

          Hi Isomorphic,

          imagine this use case:
          1. ListGrid with many rows, sorted descending by a fixed sequence-PK field. Sort can not be changed by the user
          2. DynamicForm to add an entry to the ListGrid's DataSource
          3. After adding a row (=highest PK, because of sequence) with the DynamicForm, the new entry should be on top of the ListGrid
          How does one solve this use case best?

          Thank you & Best regards

            The resort() API exists for this kind of use case. The point made above is that using it every time, for every data change, does not make sense.

              Ok, but then where and when should it be called?

              Thank you & Best regards

                Whenever you want it to happen? dynamicForm.saveData()'s callback, for example.

                  Note also, even though the call above is useless, we've made it no longer crash.

                  The reason it was crashing is that resort() was called when a resort was already going to happen.
