FlexiCapture SDK shows incorrect fields' order

Symptoms

The Document Definition shows one fields' order on the Project Setup Station or when the batch is exported while the order retrieved using IPage::IBlock::IFields is different.

Cause

Document Definitions' fields are assigned a unique ID when created. The ID increments when new fields are added.

The user can change the order to organize his output layout better during export however the IBlock::IFields gives the collection sorted by the ID.

That's why if you create the fields and change their order on the Project Setup Station (1 to 3 below is the creation order: intellectual was added first):

The order retrieved via IBlock::IFields will remain unchanged:

However, the output will follow the changed structure:

Resolution

Currently - FC 12 SDK R1 U6 - no functionality exists to change the order obtained via API.

A possible workaround may be the following:

  1. Export the document to a CSV file containing the order of the Document Structure;
  2. Open this file using filesystem APIs;
  3. Parse the file and show the output to the user.
