How can you customize sort order in a category selector? For example, I want to sort a category field with categories: "yes", "no", and "unknown", but I don't want them in alphabetical order (ascending or descending). What do I do?
I don't understand the question.
Do you have another example?
Maybe it would help if I inserted a photo example:
I want the options to be in the following order: Yes, No, Unknown
But the only options are No, Unknown, Yes OR Yes, Unknown, No (because you can only sort Ascending or Descending. I run into this with several other category selectors, too. Age ranges, for example, are text variables and not numeric, so an age range 5-9 would be sorted "higher" than 15-19 because of the 1 in 15.
You could add a field to your table to sort on.
If you have a feature class with lots of repeated values in the category field >
It is tempting to join it first but esri does Not currently support this when you publish it with Feature Access enabled.
(Map Service join is supported but then the ability to select a chart and have the map interaction is not supported - Only works with Feature Access enabled. "Catch-22")
So you can use the new table to present the sorted selector and have its filter options control selection of the other widgets.
