How to enable sorting by the custom fullname field

Question asked by Pavla Medvecov√° on Jun 15, 2016



We created a new fieldset (account_full_name) of three fields (first name, middle name and last name) and we added this field also into the record view and list view and everything works fine but there is a problem when a user wants to sort records in list view by this field (column). Then this error occurs: Non existing field: account_full_name in module: Accounts.

We extended the FullnameField in the module Accounts where we used this mapping in the custom fullname.js:

's': 'first_name_c',

'f': 'middle_name_c',

'l': 'last_name_c'

and we also copied all the hbs files without any changes.


Then we only added this field into the record view and list view:

array (

'name' => 'account_full_name',

'type' => 'fullname',


'dismiss_label' => true,

'fields' =>

array (

0 => 'first_name_c',

1 => 'middle_name_c',

2 => 'last_name_c',



We also tried to add this field to the vardefs (like in the person/vardefs.php) but then we had problems with fetching the data.

Does anybody know where could be the problem and what is important to set to enable sorting by the full name?
