php – Sonata Admin List View, make more headers sort buttons?

Questions:

I have an Admin class which has this definition of listFields:

protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper)
{
    $listMapper
            ->addIdentifier('type')
            ->add('created_at', 'datetime')
            ->add('updated_at', 'datetime')
            ->add('created_by')
            ->add('updated_by')
            ->add('is_active')
            ->add('is_deleted')
            ->add('_action', 'actions',
                    array(
                'actions' => array(
                    'view' => array(),
                    'edit' => array(),
                    'delete' => array()
                )
            ))
    ;

}

Only the “type” column is sortable – IE, when you hover over the table header for “Type” you see an asc/desc arrow and can click to re-order the rows based on this column.

How do I get that to show up on more columns?

I tried adding sortable=true but then it’s trying to join to another Entity.

How to&Answers:
# we can sort the related entity properties like. This following condition site is an entity

protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper)
{
    $listMapper
        ->addIdentifier('name')
        ->add('site',null,array(
            'sortable'=>true,
            'sort_field_mapping'=> array('fieldName'=>'name'),
            'sort_parent_association_mappings' => array(array('fieldName'=>'site')
            )))
    ;
}

this is the way to sort the related entities in list configuration.
Just check this Sort list by an entity field

Answer:

Sonata will be able to sort a field if it knows what type it is ; if you list a related entity, it will be impossible to sort.

Here is the configureListFields() from an entity “Event” which has a title and is linked to another entity “City”.

protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper)
{
    $listMapper
            ->addIdentifier('title')
            ->add('city')
}

A link will be created to the city but it will not be sortable, instead adding a specific field from “City” will work :

protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper)
{
    $listMapper
        ->addIdentifier('title')
        ->add('city.name')
}

Now it’s sortable.

Answer:

You have to add sortable option on the field.

Here is the code i use:

protected function configureListFields(ListMapper $listMapper) {
    $listMapper
        ->addIdentifier('name')
        ->add('application', null, array('sortable' => true))
        ->add('isActive', null, array('editable' => true))
        ->add('_action', 'actions', array(
            'actions' => array(
                'view' => array(),
                'edit' => array(),
                'delete' => array(),
            )
        ))
    ;
}

Hope this helps
