Restricted query and sort of slot contents


I wanted to pick your collective brains to see how you might solve this problem.

We would like to be able to restrict the displayed resultset of slot to be based on an alphabetical query and also have the items sorted alphabetically.

In pseudocode: show me all the items in slot x that begin with ‘S’. And sort them alphabetically while you are at it.

What would be the best method(s) to use to accomplish such a slot query?

My question would be…
do you want this to happen in say the active assembly table editor (ie. show the correct ordering there) or are you talking about a template that could show the items in that slot per your formatting options?

If it is a template solution…then modifying the a-z index would be a simple solution

That looks promising. I think I’ll see if I can make that approach work… Thanks
