Bug Description

In the copy editor, local stat cats are not listed in alphabetical order as they are in the XUL client.

Confirmed in EG 3.0. It is preferable that the order of statistical categories in the web client replicate that of the xul client.

I created a branch to fix this here: http://git.evergreen-ils.org/?p=working/Evergreen.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/sandbergja/lp1744386_alphabetize_stat_cats_in_volcopy

The branch is called user/sandbergja/lp1744386_alphabetize_stat_cats_in_volcopy

It sorts stat cats first by their owning library, then by the name of the stat cat. I'm happy to change this behavior if it makes more sense to sort them only by name of the stat cat.

I've attached some before/after screenshots too, in case it helps.

I actually interpreted this bug to be about the contents of each stat cat dropdown, which I guess are technically the stat cat "entries". So I see two separate issues here:

1. As Jane showed in her images, the stat cats themselves are arranged in an unhelpful order. At my institution, the web client lists them in exactly opposite order compared with the XUL client, and neither order seems helpful. So I support Jane's branch to improve this.

2. I think Elaine's original report was about the stat cat entries within each dropdown. I can confirm they are not sorted in the web client. And even if that's not what she wanted, that is what I'd like to see.

To prevent this bug from getting confusing, I'll open a new ticket for sorting the entries.

I updated the search to sort first by library, then by statistical category, then sort entires within the categories.
