Using paging in XsltListViewWebPart there are some rules, which form pageInfo attributes and which we can see in the query string. Here is the short example, what I mean.
The strange and unpredictable rule, that I noticed, is while using calculated fields in sorting. The name of the sort column is formed using the usual rule -
"p_ColumnName". But the value has the strange prefix, which consists of the magic number and "_" symbol. Here is the example.
where the first calculated column has boolean output type, and the second one - text output type. The magic numbers are 8 and 11 accordingly. What are they? What do they mean? How do they form?
There are two steps, that I am absolutely sure in.
- The magic number is different from the output type of the calculated field.
- The magic number depends on the number of parameters in the formula of calculated field. But I can't say exactly, what dependence is.
Please, share some information about these magic numbers, if you can.
