    Table sort doesn't sort the backbean list

    Kathy Zhu Newbie

      I have a table below with 3 cols. NOT using external sort.
      When I click on a header to sort, the orderBy property is updated, the table on the screen is re-sorted correctly, but the backbean list "filteredDesignList" is still in the original order when it is loaded. I noticed this issue when click on to invoke "dbAction.addFavorite".

      Any idea to make the back bean list be in sync with the list show on the screen?

      <rich:dataTable id="mydesigns" rows="10"
      var="design" rowKeyVar="rowKey"
      value="#{filteredDesignList}" width="100%">

      <rich:column id="desCatCol"
      sortBy="#{design.reportDesign.categoryTitle}"
      sortOrder="#{myWorkspace.designSort.categorySort}">
      <f:facet name="header">
      <h:outputText value="Category" />
      </f:facet>
      <h:outputText value="#{design.reportDesign.categoryTitle}" />
      </rich:column>

      <rich:column id="titleCatCol"
      sortBy="#{design.reportDesign.name}"
      sortOrder="#{myWorkspace.designSort.titleSort}">
      <f:facet name="header">
      <h:outputText value="Title" />
      </f:facet>
      <h:outputText value="#{design.reportDesign.name}" />
      </rich:column>

      <rich:column width="15px" style="text-align:center">
      <f:facet name="header">
      <h:outputText value="Favorite" />
      </f:facet>
      <a4j:commandButton
      action="#{dbAction.addFavorite}"
      bypassUpdates="true"
      title="Add to Favorites"
      reRender="mydesigns" >
      <a4j:actionparam name="selRow"
      assignTo="#{dbAction.activeRow}"
      value="#{rowKey}"/>
      </a4j:commandButton>
      </rich:column>
