    Default sort of Brief List in GUI

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How can we set the default sort for the Brief List in GUI?


    Procedure:
    The default sort for the GUI Brief List is set in $alephe_root/pc_server_defaults by parameter "setenv pc_sort_field'´and is related to the sort fields assigned in ./xxx01/tab/tab_sort.

    Example:

    $alephe_root/pc_server_defaults
    setenv pc_sort_field "02 A01 D"

    ./xxx01/tab/tab_sort
    !1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 12 13 4 15 16 7 18 9
    !!-!!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!-!!-!!
    01 95 008 260## c 08 04
    02 01 1#### a 700## a 00 00
    03 11 245## a 2 240## 2 00 00
    04 22 050## LOC## hjl 084## a 00 00
    05 11 440## av 2 00 00
    06 TYP## FMT## 00 00
    07 01 BND 245## a 2 00 00


    Sorting in this case is done by "Author, ascending", then "Year, descending".

    Additional Information

    Please note that after changing the configuration of tab_sort "Update Sort Index (manage-27)" has to run in order to create a proper sorting.
