    12.0p Reference Docs "Type / Return Type" sorting

    Hi Isomorphic,

    I was looking for everything related to DSRequest in ListGrid. Doing so in the SmartGWT ListGrid-docs is time consuming, so I use the SmartClient Reference Docs version of the docs for many searches.
    The search there only is over method names, not return types, so I tried sorting by them, which is possible, but results in a strange sort (see screenshot).

    Therefore I have an enhancement suggestion: Could you do either or both of this?
    • Fix the return type sort
    • Add an checkbox option similar to "Attributes", "Methods" named "Search return types", that also text-searches the return types and not just method names

    Thank you & Best regards

    The sorting problem should be resolved back to SC 12.0 in today's nightly builds, dated 2020-05-19.


      Hi Isomorphic,

      I can see the change, thanks. This will definitely help.

      W.r.t e.g. : "Array of HeaderSpan" "headerSpans", a search here might help as well.
      Same for setters like void exportData ([requestProperties, callback]), where the parameter names itself would help a search (and even more their types
      • requestProperties (optional) - type: DSRequest
      • callback (optional) - type: DSCallback
      if that is possible).

      These are minor wishlist suggestions.

      Best regards


        Could you clarify your request here?

        If you type in "HeaderSpan" as a search term you do hit properties that are type Array of HeaderSpan.

        Likewise if you type in DSRequest you do hit methods, such as exportData, that take a argument of type DSRequest Properties. It's just far down the list since there are many methods that are (correctly) deemed more relevant to your search.
