Filter a List which is grouped by column

Aug 27, 2013 at 8:51 AM
Hi,

i got problems when using this Filtertool on a List, where the List-View is grouped by a column.
When i filter the List, it displays wrong elements.

Anyone got the same issue?

Thank you

Hi,

when i change the default view(Group by setting) from collapsed to expaned its working.
Is this a SharePoint bug? I found someone with the same problem but the workarounds are not working for me!

Problem-Description:
I filter my List but it shows items in a grouped section which should be filtered.
I checked the CAML Request from the ListViewFilter and it returns just the correct filtered values. This is a proof, that the Group By View of a SharePoint List is responsible for showing items that should be filtered.

"Workaround":
Change the default view (Group by setting in list settings) to expanded from collapsed...
Now its working but it shows my Groups expanded, which is very bad for my list with 100k items...

Is there someone with a fix for that issue?

Hi NPH,

Perhaps you can check out what's going on by reading this Filter guiding page. It provides detailed explanation for client side programming.
