Architect Build tested:
  • Build: 640 (SA 2.1.0)

Project Type:
  • ExtJS 4.1

  • Columns in grouped headers are not sortable even with the "sortable: true" checkbox selected.
  • When you check the box for a sortable column in the property window, it removes the "sortable: true" in the code. The description says that sortable is true by default, but the column becomes not sortable. If you add the sortable: true in the generated code it makes the column sortable.
  • If you move the column outside the grouped header (a column inside another column) it works as you may expect if sortable is true.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
  • Create a new ExtJS 4.1 project
  • Add a grid
  • Use autocolumn for the grid and the store
  • Group headers (create a column a put another column inside this one using drag and drop)

The result that was expected:
  • All sortable columns should be sortable

The result that occurs instead:
  • Columns are not sortable if grouped in another column.


Screenshot, Project, or Video:
  • The following screenshots show how it is not possible to put sortable: true, and how sortable columns are not sortable.


of the bug in ogv format (use firefox or any modern media player)

Possible fix:

  • Add sortable: true to all columns (instead of omitting it)

Operating System:
  • Linux 2.6.32 (debian 64)
