I have pushed the patch to stable followed by a patch addressing the issue with the missing sorting directly after start-up, see

OK I see.

Personally I find both of these issues less relevant than no possibility to sort at all, but obviously some user is going to complain then :-)  IOW a lot of work/dev time for cosmetic issues.

I am facing two problems:

  • Right after startup without existing settings file, no sort indicator is shown and clicking on the header has no effect.
  • When explicitly showing the sort indicator in the code the indicated sorting is ignored after startup (see attached screenshot workspace_sorting.png); it is necessary to click on the header in order to get the correct sorting.

Torsten, what exactly do you mean with "sorting is ignored right after start-up"?
If -immediately after starting of Octave fitted with my little patch- I do:

>> a = 3
a =  3
>> b = int32 (2)
b = 2
>> c = true
c =  1
>> d = [1, 2; 3, 4]
d =

   1   2
   3   4

...sorting in the workspace works perfectly for all columns.

While testing the patch I recognized that the sorting is ignored right after startup. I am going to look into this issue before applying the patch.

Here's a cset.

Would this be for stable or dev version? It once worked on stable AFAIK.

(file #34349)

(Bug report singled out from bug #45428)

cset http://hg.octave.org/octave/rev/9a8be23d2c05 broke the option to sort columns in the workspace viewer by double-clicking the column headers.

cset to fix it in a next comment.
