Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-346) Contact find() should have sorting
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2012 18:35:40 GMT


Filip Maj updated CB-346:

          Component/s: WP7
             Priority: Minor  (was: Critical)
    Affects Version/s: 1.5.0
              Summary: Contact find() should have sorting  (was: Contact find() should be
enhanced to have sorting and more filter options)

The cordova Contacts API is based on the [W3C Contacts API draft spec|].

Wildcards are already supported in the Contact FindOptions {{filter}} property.

Currently there are no provisions in this spec for any sorting functionality. I agree that
sorting is a good feature to have, so you've got a +1 from me. I would suggest bringing this
issue up in the Apache cordova mailing lists and gather more support for the feature, and
possibly submit a pull request with an implementation for faster/more likely inclusion :)

> Hi All,
> PhoneGap(Cordova) Contacts.find() method should be enhanced to have multiple options
for filters including wildcard filtering. Besides, there is also a very critical requirement
for sorting. Phonebook contacts are usually not sorted and especially after the backup/restore
using any App, so at this point the need for sorting is much higher. Without that I am afraid
one can use it in any App. 
> Moreover, one can't use Divider List functionality of JQuery Mobile. 
> I will be very obliged if you make it available asap.
