Total and Subtotal: Enable Sort and Filter

Currently, the new fields Total and Subtotal do not allow sorting or filtering. You can see this on the grid of Order Form – the Total column does not have a dropdown available, and the field is not displayed in the advanced search bar.

'Total' field in Order Form is not searchable or filterable

Let’s enable sorting and filtering for these two fields. Switch back to the Project Explorer, and double-click on Orders / Fields / Subtotal. Change the following settings:

Property Value
Allow Query-by-Example True
Allow Sorting True

Enable Query-by-Example and Sorting on 'Subtotal' field

Press OK to save the field. Now, double-click on Total field. Make the same changes:

Property Value
Allow Query-by-Example True
Allow Sorting True

Enable Query-by-Example and Sorting on 'Total' field

Save the field, and regenerate the application. On the Order Form page, you can see that the Total field is now searchable and filterable.
