Parse + Angular orderBy Issue

I have an ng-repeat for a table in Angular. The data is coming from Parse.

    <tr dir-paginate="ticket in tickets | orderBy:sortType:sortReverse | itemsPerPage: 10">
        <td><input type="checkbox" class="checkthis" /></td>
        <td>{{ }}</td>
        <td>${{ ticket.get("total").toFixed(2) }}</td>
        <td>${{ ticket.get("tax").toFixed(2) }}</td>
        <td>{{ ticket.get("paymentType") }}</td>
        <td>{{ ticket.createdAt | date: 'short' }}</td>

When I orderBy 'id' or 'createdAt' the sorting works properly. How do I go about ordering by total, tax or paymentType?



The parse objects' attributes are accessed via get(), and I think orderBy: filter depends on having a native getter.

In angular therefore, one way to go is to create a service that extends the backbone object and provides native getters and setters:

(function() {
    'use strict';
    angular.module('').factory('MyClass', f);

    function f() {

        var MyClass = Parse.Object.extend("MyClass", {
            // instance methods

            // manually built getter like this
            attributeA : function() {
                return this.get("attributeA");

        }, {
            // class methods    

        // or code-built getters/setters like this
        _.each(["attributeB", "attributeC"], function(p) {
            Object.defineProperty(MyClass.prototype, p, {
                get: function() {return this.get(p);},
                set: function(aValue) {this.set(p, aValue);}
        return MyClass;

This is probably good practice anyway, even if you don't need the attributes for orderBy. The service class is a good place to put promise-returning queries, for example.


If your data comes via Parse JavaScript SDK, you receive them as Parse Objects that you can convert into plain Objects more suitable for AngularJS via the .toJSON() method:

plainObject = parseObject.toJSON();
