Description Matt Reid 2012-05-01 16:48:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Most tables users encounter allow the user to specify how they are sorted. I think our tables could benefit from supporting this, throughout all of the GUI.

This would let users have more control over the display of data, and give them more tools to find what they're looking for quickly and in the manner they want to. It would also let users know at a glance how the table is currently arranged.

I know Nautilus supports this, my hope is it would be a trivial change code-wise.

    817938: Make columns in subscription-manager tables sortable.

This commit makes the following columns sortable:
  My Installed Software:
    - Product
    - Version
    - Arch
    - Status
    - Start Date
    - End Date
  My Subscriptions:
    - Subscription
    - End Date
    - Quantity
  All Available Subscriptions:
    - Subscription
    - Type
    - Available Subscriptions

Note that the list above does not include the Quantity column underneath All Available Subscriptions.  This omission was intentional as changing the quantity would cause the column to instantly be resorted taking the row you had selected and suddenly placing it in a different order.  I decided this behavior was disorienting.  If you do want sorting on the Quantity column let me know and I will add it back.

Makes sense, I think that's a fair point. Might be something we change down the road, but from the demo, it sounds like a good idea.
Comment 3 Matt Reid 2012-05-31 10:47:36 EDT
Any chance we can implement this for the table in the Contract Selector dialog too?

Could probably skip Used/Total and Quantity, unless you can sort Used/Total as a percentage, but I would expect to be able to sort Contract Number, Type, Start Date, and End Date.

Being able to sort everything in the last commit is pretty awesome.

RHEL 5.9
# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription-manager|python-rhsm"

Arch is longer a part of GUI under "My Installed Software"
Except for "Quantity" and "Used/Total" it is sortable on every other attribute
