Description

In the EPG view it's possible to select the channel from a list. Unfortunately this list is not sorted and therefore it's very hard to find the channel you're looking for. It would also be great if this list would recognize a key press, so that when I press "s" it jumps to the first occurrence that starts with an "s".

The list is sorted, but channel names starting with a lower case character are listed after the ones with a capital letter.
Could be a bug in the ExtJS Framework?!

Hi Rene,

no, it's not a case-sensitive sort. See the attached screenshot! So sorting just doesn't work. I'm not familiar with Sencha's Javascript libraries, so I can't help you here.

Regards,

Sascha

mh strange, for me everything is working fine...

I'm on OSX Lion with the latest Chrome, what browser are you using? What ExtJS version are you guys using? Do you think it would make sense to upgrade to the latest? Probably browser-incompatibility issues? That's really weird.

  • Subject changed from [2.99.26.gfc10a - WEB UI] Electronic Program Guide: Channel list not sorted, no character recognition to EPG: channel sort by name/text filter

Channels are not sorted by display name, they are sorted by channel number. If no channel number exists the ordering will be undefined.

I'm afraid this isn't going to change anytime soon. There is a consideration for adding a second EPG/DVR UI that might be more user friendly for those sort of tasks.

Changed channel sorting from number to name (except for channels tab). It will be in the PR. ;)

Walter,

I wouldn't "change" the sorting, I would expect the existing sorting to exist and just add extra sorting routines for the other column(s).

The extjs record cache is sorting, so the change affects the ui only. If that's not good, tell me how it should be and I'll try to do. :)

Hold on...

I've completely misread this issue. You're talking about the drop down channel selector in the EPG window? In which case it is sorted, by channel number (which for most people makes most sense since they tend to have channels numbered in a logical order which puts most important channels early in the list). That doesn't want to change.

As for the type to filter, that was added during 3.2 development and is in the beta release. I don't think this particular FR requires any further effort.

I think is easier to consult a list alphabetically sorted, especially when there're many items, so I've also sorted the others. :D
Even if you think that is not good, give a glance to my branch. I would like to know what you think of the ui... ;)
