Add a sort by date option to the browse screen

Hi there,

 

I have a simple data set showing on the browse screen of my app that already has the default sort ascending descending button, the OnSelect command is UpdateContext({SortDescending1: !SortDescending1}).  I have a text field on the screen that shows the date and time a record was added via the EditScreen and I would like to add a button to allow users to sort by date and time.

 

The text field that holds the date is named "Body1", so I tried putting "UpdateContext({SortAecending:Body1})" but I get a message saying there are side effects and it cannot be evaluated, does anyone have any advice for me?

 

Thanks,

Alan

Hi @v-monli-msft  and @mdevaney  I am hoping one of you can maybe help me with this question.  The thread is maybe too long now and a bit confusing to review so just to clarify, I want to add a button to my apps BrowseScreen that sorts the records shown by the date field "Body1" in the screen shot attached.  Can you guide me on how best to approach this?

 

Thanks,

Alan

Hi @v-monli-msft @Delid4ve guys, did you have a chance to look at this one from me?  I am really hoping one of you can help me with it....

this one worked for me but you have to put it on the BrowseGallery1_1. So that will sort that list by date and time no matter what the sorting button does

Hi @Nohaph , thanks for responding to this one!  Can you help me further, when you say "this one worked for me" what are you referring to?
