- Ordering Lookup Entries - Grid Component
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Ordering Lookup Entries - Grid Component.xml
Often you will want to display a list of values selected from a table. It is often desirable to specifically order these entries, instead of allowing them to display in record order or alphabetically.

However, if you created a new Grid from a Template, the default properties that you set were not honored. They were only honored if you created a blank new grid. Now, the default properties are used even if you use a template. This makes it much easier to customize the Grid builder for developers whose native language is not English.
