Losing the checkbox Checks when gallery is sorted.

I have a gallery that has a checkbox against each item. I also have labels on top of each column that have OnSelect command to sort ascending/descending.

When an item is CHECKED, we are pushing that to a collection. When an item is UNCHECKED, the item is removed from the collection.

When users CHECK an item. Sort by a column then discover their item, the check boxes are being automatically unchecked. However, the items remain in the collection.

This is a big issue user experience wise because users do not know which ones they actually selected.

Scoured the internet for a solution/bug but cannot find anything. Any help is much appreciated.

If the checkbox is bound to a column in your collection, it should stay checked.
