Display the type of sort performed


Recommended Posts

I have a field that shows the type of sort that was just performed on some data. ex. "sorted by sign number" "sorted by sign type". This works great to show the user what sort type they are looking at and will eventually print, but I need this field to change to "unsorted" if something is changed in the data which yields it to not be sorted correctly anymore. Such as a new record is added or a field that determines the sort type is changed. This will then notify the user that they need to sort again before printing. Is there a way to do this?

If it's a calc field, you could use a Case statement such as


Case ( Get(SortState) = 2 or Get ( SortState ) = 0 ; "Unsorted" ; (and the rest of the conditions would follow).

So I have a case statement in my calc field that says:


Case ( Get(SortState) = 2 or Get ( SortState ) = 0 ; "Unsorted" ; Get ( SortState ) = 1; Sorted By ; )


"Sorted By" is a hidden field that contains the type of sort

(ex. "by sign type" "by sign #") that was performed by a script button, globally.


When the button "sort by sign type" is pressed the script runs fine and the correct text is displayed in the calc field (essentially what is contained in the hidden "sorted by" field) but for some reason it does not work with the other button ("sort by sign #") is pressed. It displays a "?" in the calc field. I think it may have something to do with storing things globally??? Any ideas?
