Sort gallery by column header

Hi all,

 

I can't wrap my head around this.... have been trying with Sort and Sortbycolumns.

 

I have a sharepoint list cointaining multiple columns (text, choice, lookup).

I want to be able to sort on each of the columns in my gallery by using a button that I am using as my header.

 

For my lookup column I am using Addcolumns and I am using a textbox to filter my gallery.

Next to sorting on column I also have a button where the user can change the order of the sort.

 

The order of my sort works when I have a fixed column to sort on but doesn't work when I use a dynamic column for sorting.

 

See code below:

 

Items in Gallery:

 

Sort(
If(
Len(txtRequestSearch.Text) = 0,
AddColumns(Task,"addAccount",Account.Value),
Filter(
AddColumns(Task,"addAccount",Account.Value),
Lower(txtRequestSearch.Text) in Title || Lower(txtRequestSearch.Text) in DeptReceive || Lower(txtRequestSearch.Text) in Status.Value || Lower(txtRequestSearch.Text) in Account.Value || Lower(txtRequestSearch.Text) in 'Request Type'
)
),
varJobColumnSort,
varJobOrderSort
)

 

Onselect of columnheader button (account in below case):

Set(
varJobColumnSort,
"addAccount"
)

 

Onselect of sorticon:

 

Set(
varJobOrderSort,
If(
varJobOrderSort = Descending,
Ascending,
Descending
)
)

Hi @Lennova ,

You can only use dynamic column names in SortByColumns as these utilise Text.
