missing script step
Operating system version
Description of the issue
perhaps you missed to integrate (also in FM11, as far as I can see) a script step named "Sort records of portal/object x by field y".
Steps to reproduce the problem
Program a Tab including a portal showing a subset of records that have to be sorted by a number of fields listed in the portal.
As (easy as) in the table view, the records in the portal ought to be sortable. All the talk in the various forums about workarounds just shows that the above mentioned scipt step is missing.
It does not work. Wiht an affordable amount of work, I do not succeed in establishing a series of buttons that cause sorting of the portal columns below.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
Each time I miss the script step, the error message "The otherwise so ingenious Filemakers must have forgotten to include this script step!" appears in front of my mind.
Presenting various tabs for various sorting options is possible, but hard to maintain, because every change in the portal has to be repeated for every tab.
