Description Jason McDonald 2013-07-15 06:37:19 UTC
Description of problem:
In the Advanced Search form, under Custom Search, the drop down lists showing the possible fields are not correctly sorted in alphabetic order, which makes it unnecessarily difficult to find certain fields in what is rather a long list.

It appears that the list is mostly sorted, with a few fields out of order. For example, Hours Left appears towards the bottom of the list between Regression and Reporter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Click "Search"
3. Scroll down to "Custom Search"
4. Click on the leftmost drop down list on the second row.
5. Scroll the list until you find "Hours Left" (not to be confused with "Hours Worked")

Actual results:
The "Hours Left" field appears out-of-order (between "Regression" and "Reporter").

Expected results:
The list should be presented in alphabetic order.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Simon Green 2013-07-15 23:12:22 UTC
I suspect this is coming from the field name (remaining_time is between "Regression" and "Reporter"), but agree that it should be fixed. The exception will be the two component lists, which will appear below 'Component'. This is an intentional decision.
